Live women's football matches will be broadcast for the first time in France as of next season, the French Football Federation (FFF) president Noel Le Graet said Thursday after selling the rights to France Television and Eurosport.

France Television is set to show six of the French league matches, three of which will be shown on national channel France 4 with the other three being shown regionally.

In total, at least 11 live matches are set to be broadcast, according to the FFF, who sold the rights to the channels for a total of 110,000 euros.

"We put the broadcast rights for the women's French league out to tender, and the winning offers came from France Television and Eurosport," said Le Graet.

"I'm happy because for the first time this league is going to be shown on television and is going to be given media coverage."

The broadcast rights to France's national women's team, however, remain the property of Direct 8 channel.
