Dutch pay-television operator Ziggo Sport has acquired rights to show French soccer’s top-tier Ligue 1 for three years starting with the 2021-22 season.

It is the first time since 2018 that it will be possible to follow Ligue 1 on Dutch TV. Prior to that, Eurosport had the rights.

The new Ligue 1 season kicks off on 6 August.

Ziggo recently extended its rights deal for Italy's top-tier Serie A.

Elsewhere in soccer it has rights to England's Premier League, Spain's LaLiga, Europe's Uefa Champions League and qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

However, it is set to lose the Premier League and Formula 1 in 2022, with the rights have been acquired by Nordic Entertainment Group for its Viaplay streaming service, which is launching in the Netherlands next year.
