LIGUE 1- THE MOST EXPECTABLE LEAGUE IN FRANCE

Ligue 1 is the top French professional league. Its original form has been inaugurated in 1932 with a lot of breathtaking achievements. France Ligue 1 is now also ranked the fifth position in the UEFA coefficient of the national association and got three tickets to the prestigious UEFA Champions League. If you have not known much of this great championship, let’s check it out with Betimate immediately!

WHAT IS FRANCE LIGUE 1?

France Ligue 1 is officially known as Ligue 1 or Ligue 1 Uber Eats due to sponsorship reasons. It was no longer called Ligue 1 Orange and Ligue 1 Conforama in the past before being re-signed to Uber Eats in 2020. 

Ligue 1 is the top professional league of the French football league system for men’s association football clubs. This championship is contested by the best 20 French football clubs and administered by the Ligue de Football Professionnel ( the Professional Football League- LFP).

It is also the pride of French football when being known as the fifth European Premier League just after the English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, and Serie A. 

Ligue 1Ligue 1

HOW IS THE HISTORY OF LIGUE 1?

In July 1930, the National Council of the French Football Federation agreed to create “Professionalism in French football”. It was officially implemented in 1932 under the name “National” and taken part in by 20 teams. According to that, those clubs had to qualify three important criteria:

  • The incoming clubs must have had positive results in the past.

  • They must be able to pull in enough revenue to balance their finances.

  • They must successfully recruit at least eight professional players.

During World War II, Division 1 was suspended by the French government but its member clubs continued playing in regional competitions. Following the conclusion of the war and the Liberation of France, professional football finally returned to France. Since 2002, the league has changed its name from Division 1 to Ligue 1.

HOW IS THE FORMAT OF FRANCE LIGUE 1?

The format of the Ligue 1 has been changed several times before remaining in the current status. 

  • In the first season of Division 1 (1932-33), there were 20 teams taking part in the league. They were divided into 2 groups of 10. The bottom three of each group would be relegated to Division 2 and the two winners of each group would compete with each other in the final game. The first champion of the league was Olympique Lillois. 

  • In the next season, the league was renamed from “National” to “Division 1”. There were 14 clubs participating without any promotion from the Second Division. 

  • From 1934-1935 to 1938-39: the league organized a legitimate promotion and relegation system. Its number of teams were also increased to 16. 

  • After World War II, there were 18 clubs taking part in the league. That number has been increased to 20 since the 1965-66 season.

  • The name Ligue 1 was officially used in 2002 to replace the former name Division 1

During the course of a current season, usually held from August to May, each club among 20 teams plays the others twice, once home and once away. There are a total of 38 games in the league. Teams receive 3 points for each win, 1 point for each draw, and no points for losses. At the end of a season, the team with the most points is crowned champion. 

If points are equal, the goal difference and goal scored to determine the winner. Teams are considered the same position if still equal. If there is a tie for the championship, for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank. 

HOW IS ITS EUROPEAN QUALIFICATION?

According to the UEFA coefficient, the top 3 teams in League 1 qualify for the UEFA Championships League. The top two leading teams are directly promoted to the group phase while the third-ranked team enters in the third qualifying round. 

The fourth-placed club is eligible for the Europa League. The other two Europa League positions are the champion of the country’s two Domestic Cups called the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue. If these two places have qualified for Europe via their league position, the fifth and sixth-ranked clubs in Ligue 1 have the right to take part in the Europa League. 

PRIZES OF FRANCE LIGUE 1

The Ligue 1 champions will be awarded the trophy “ L'Hexagoal”. It was developed by the Ligue de Football Professionnel and created by Franco-Argentine artist Pablo Reinoso. Players of the team will receive honorable medals as well. 

In addition, awards like  Player of the Month, Player of the Year, Manager of the Year, and Young Player of the Year from both Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 are handed out.
