Éditions Philippe Amaury (EPA), also known as Groupe EPA or the Amaury Group, is a French media group founded by Philippe Amaury, whose widow Marie-Odile Amaury owns a majority of the company.

In partnership with SNC L'Equipe, the group publishes the sports journals l'Équipe, l'Équipe Magazine, France Football and Vélo Magazine.

Furthermore, EPA owns the television channel l'Equipe 21, which airs French and international sports competitions like road cycling, rally, motocross, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, judo, biathlon and the European Games.

Amaury Sport Organisation is one of the largest promoters of sports events in France, including the Tour de France and Paris–Roubaix bicycle races, the Paris–Dakar Rally, the Paris Marathon and the Open de France golf tournament.

In 1998, the group launched the L'Équipe television channel as an extension to the newspaper L'Équipe.[1]

EPA formerly owned le Parisien, a local newspaper in greater Paris, as well as its national edition, Aujourd'hui en France. LVMH acquired the papers in 2015.[2]
