Hot shots Sports in pictures. Betfair Paris Saint-Germain 2 Lille 1: In order to successfully create a professional football league in the country, the Federation limited the league to twenty clubs.
In order to participate in the competition, clubs were subjected to three important criteria:. Jooris feared his league would fold and proposed it become the second division of the new league.
Eventually, many clubs earned professional status, though it became more difficult to convince clubs in the northern half of the country; Strasbourg, RC Roubaix, and Amiens refused to accept the new league, while conversely Mulhouse , Excelsior AC Roubaix , Metz , and Fives accepted professionalism.
The two winners of each group would then face each other in a final held at a neutral venue, which later turned out to the Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir.
Antibes, the winner of Group B, was supposed to take part in the final but was suspected of bribery by the French Football Federation and was forced into disqualification.
After the season, the league decided to retain the 14 clubs and not promote any sides from the second division. The league also agreed to change its name from National to simply Division 1.
For the —35 season , the league organized a legitimate promotion and relegation system bringing the total tally of clubs in the first division to The number remained until the —39 season.
Because of World War II, football was suspended by the French government and the Ligue de Football Professionnel, although its member clubs continued playing in regional competitions.
During the "war championships", as they are called, professionalism was abolished by the Vichy regime and clubs were forced to participate in regional leagues, designated as Zone Sud and Zone Nord.
Following the conclusion of the war and the liberation of France , professional football returned to France.
The first division increased its allotment of clubs to This number remained until the —66 season when the number was increased to In , the league changed its name from Division 1 to Ligue 1.
There are 20 clubs in Ligue 1. During the course of a season, usually from August to May, each club plays the others twice, once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 38 games, though special circumstances may allow a club to host matches at other venues such as when Lille hosted Lyon at the Stade de France in and Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw.
No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference , and then goals scored.
At the end of each season, the club with the most points is crowned champion. If points are equal, the goal difference and then goals scored determine the winner.
If still equal, teams are deemed to occupy the same position. 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.
Previously, the league utilized a different promotion and relegation format. The league has also experimented with a "bonus" rule.
From to , a rule rewarded teams scoring three or more goals in a game with one extra point, regardless of outcome, with the objective of encouraging offensive play.
The experience was ultimately inconclusive. At the start of the —07 season , the league introduced an Attacking Play Table to encourage the scoring of more goals in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.
The LFP, with the help of the former manager Michel Hidalgo introduced the idea to reward those teams who score the most goals.
The table was similar to the previous idea, but was independent from the official league table and clubs were only rewarded with monetary bonuses.
The third-placed team enters in the third qualifying round. If both of the cup winners qualify for Europe through their league position, the fifth- and sixth-placed teams in Ligue 1 will qualify for the Europa League.
A total of 76 clubs have played in Ligue 1 from its foundation in the —33 season to the start of the —12 season. Paris Saint-Germain is the only club to have not suffered points relegation.
