Ligue 2 begins this Saturday with nine matches counting for the first day of the 2021-2022 campaign. Thanks to an agreement between Amazon and the L’Equipe channel, the eight matches of the multiplex will be to be followed unencrypted on TNT from 7 p.m., while the duel between Bastia and Nîmes will launch the season from 3 p.m.
At a time when Canal +, the LFP and beIN Sports are wrestling with the courts around the TV rights of Ligue 1, Ligue 2 resumes this Saturday with no less than nine matches. From 3 p.m., the second division championship will begin with a great poster between two historic French football clubs.
Falling back into anonymity and at the amateur level, Bastia is back in L2 this year and will thus challenge Nîmes from the first day. In their lair of Furiani, where the public will return, the Corsicans will be keen to bring down the old elite formation. Meet at 3 p.m. to follow the duel between Batia and Nîmes live live on beIN Sports 1, as well as on the radio on RMC of course.

The unencrypted multiplex on TNT
After a beautiful poster for the curtain, the first day of the season in Ligue 2 will continue with a multiplex of eight games. And that’s where the first revolution comes in: these matches will be available for free and in clear on the channel L’Equipe (TNT channel 21) live from 7 p.m. A direct consequence of the TV rights crisis between the LFP and the broadcasters. You can of course also live the matches on the radio, on RMC.
Also impacted by the withdrawal of Mediapro, Ligue 2 finally saw Amazon – via its Prime Video platform – acquire the eight meetings released by the Sino-Spanish group. But the online sales giant has finally concluded broadcasting with the L’Equipe channel for the entire 2021-2022 season. For those who would like to follow a particular match, they will be accessible via eight broadcasting channels on the application and the platform of the L’Équipe website. The tenth and last match of this first day of Ligue 2, the clash between Dijon and Sochaux, will be broadcast on Monday evening (8:45 p.m.) on beIN Sports 1.
