FRANCE NATIONAL 3

The France National 3 is also known as the Championnat National 3. This is the fifth tier of the French football league system and is one of the main playgrounds for reserve and amateur football clubs in France.

What is the Championnat National 3?

The Championnat National 3 is referred to as the National 3 or Championnat de France Amateur 2. This is the fifth tier of the French football league system, which is ranked below Ligue 1, Ligue 2, the Championnat National, and the Championnat National 2. It also operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the National 2 and the  Régional 1 (previously as Division d'Honneur), the sixth division of French football. 

The National 3 has been played since 1993. Most clubs come from amateur clubs, and a small number of teams are reserve clubs from the higher- leveled semi-professional league.

How is the format of the France National 3?

In 2017, the FFF reorganized amateur football. The National 3 saw a major restructure. The new competition features 168 participating clubs which are split into 12 parallel groups aligned to the thirteen regions( Corsica is merged with Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur to form a group called Méditerranee-Corse). The administration of the league is devolved to regional federations. 

A National 3 season lasts from August to May. Each team plays the others in their respective groups twice, once home and once away, for a total of 26 games. 

Teams’ positions are ranked as follows: 

  • total points gained in games 
  • goal difference between the two clubs
  • overall goal difference
  • goal scored
  • best disciplinary record
  • drawing of lots.

At the end of the season, the winner of each group is promoted to the National 2. At least the three last-ranked teams in each group are relegated to the Regional 1 Division.

Which teams are playing in the Championnat National 3? ( 2020-21)

The FFF adopted the competition's constitution and announced the groups on July 15, 2021.
The FFF announced that there would be no normal promotion or relegation from the division due to the non-completion of the 2020–21 season and that any vacancies would be filled based on finishing places in the 2019–20 season.

 

  • The reserve team of the newly formed Bourges Foot 18 were placed in Group C.
  • Tours were administratively relegated from Group C for financial reasons, which was confirmed on appeal.
  • Gazélec Ajaccio were administratively relegated from Championnat National 2 for financial reasons, a decision which was confirmed on appeal, and were placed in Group D. The group will have 15 teams this season.
  • Vitré and Montpellier (res) were promoted to fill vacancies in Championnat National 2 as best 14th placed teams in the 2019–20 season. They were replaced by Trégunc and Aigues-Mortes
