How does it work ?

In November 2013, the board of directors of the National Centre for the Development of Sport (CNDS) approved the creation of an emerging sports media coverage support plan. This fund, by financing part of the audiovisual production costs, is designed to promote the practice of sports by women and the handicapped, by boosting the broadcasting of these sports on free and/or public TV channels.

The objective of this plan is to improve the general public’s awareness of these sports.

In 2015, a €1 million package is reserved for the support of projects which fall into this category.

How is it organised ?

Requests are studied by a committee composed of representatives from the ministry in charge of sports, the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF), the French Paralympic Sports Council (CPSF), the National Professional Sports League Association (ANLSP), the National Centre for Cinema (CNC), the Commission for Audio-visual Excellence, and an independent sports media expert. This committee meets every quarter.

Who is this for ?

    • Government recognised sports federations ;
    • By extension, organisation committees or associations and any non-profit organisation which has received the organisation of an event by a federation or managing an event as part of a strong partnership and with the formal agreement of a federation.

Which events are subsidised ?

    • Mixed sporting events, in particular women’s sport or handicapped sport, with television broadcasting support
    • Sports programmes which are due to be broadcast publicly and with pre-established objectives on the subjects of media exposure, sports pedagogy and improving public knowledge of these disciplines.
    • The purchase of oversees broadcasting rights (only for the disabled sports federation)
    • Events with insufficient or weak commercialisation of images in the recent past, in terms of public access to free channels
    • National or regional games, on condition that they correspond to CNOSF’s plan for events managed by regional Olympic and sports councils

For which broadcasters ?

    • Free TV channels which broadcast on French soil
    • Paid TV channels with large broadcasting areas on French soil and on condition that free access is also available for all of the produced images (unscrambled, online, replay TV)
    • Potentially, local TV channels (or locally broadcast channels)

What are the conditions for funding ?

    • Aspects eligible for funding : equipment and production costs, including human needs, and, if necessary, advertising of the produced programme
    • Broadcasting costs are not eligible for funding
    • The bottom limit for funding is €5,000 for a €10,000 project
    • The upper limit corresponds to 50% of the costs eligible for funding, except in special cases
    • These cannot be combined with the CNOSF/L’Equipe 21 plan
