Everything about the Ligue 1

Ligue 1 has been the name of the top division in French football league since 2002. This league, which has been operating since 1932, two years after professionalism in French football became legal, before that it was called Division 1.

The first season of the league (at that certain season the league was called National) included 20 teams, and today's Ligue 1 included the same number of teams.

Since 2007, the winner receives the “Hexagoal” trophy, designed by Pablo Reinoso, which has replaced the old trophy, called “le Trophée de Ligue 1”, which was designed by d'Andrée Putman.

The 20 clubs play against each other in home and away games, which mean that during an entire season, each team plays 38 matches. Since the 1994-95 season, every win receives three points and for a draw, one point is received. The record of most points scored during a season belongs to Paris Saint-Germain, in the 2015-2016 season.

Everything about Ligue 1's foundation history

Everything about the Ligue 1

Until July 1930, there was no such thing as professional football in France. It was in this year that the French Football Federation voted in favor.

The founders of professional football were Georges Bayrou, Emmanuel Gambardella, and Gabriel Hanot. The league officially began operating in 1932.

The French Football Federation limited the number of teams allowed to participate in the league to 20 to maintain the quality of the matches, and the following conditions were met for these teams:

  • Having a good professional background in the past;
  • Having sufficient income to the extent that the club can maintain balance in its finances;
  • And, the incoming club should be able to hire a maximum of 8 professional players.
  • The first season of the all-professional football league, called National, was held in 1932/33. In these competitions, the 20 teams present were divided into two groups of 10 teams, and it was decided that from each category, 7 teams at the top of the table would remain in the National league and the 3 teams at the bottom of the table would fall to the Division 2.

It was also decided that in order to determine the league champion, the winners of both groups would compete in a final match, and the winner of this match would be determined as the champion of the season.

The first winner of the final match of the national league was Olympique Lillois, which was able to win the title of the first champion in the French professional league.

It was after these competitions that the French Football Federation decided to keep 14 teams in the National league and not allow a Division 2 team to advance to the National league.  In addition, at the same time, the name of the league was changed from the National League to Division 1.

In the 1934/35 season, the federation decided to reform the league's game system, increasing the number of participating teams from 14 to 16. This number remained unchanged until the 1938/39 season.

During the World War II, the French Professional League competitions were not held, and during these years, the professional teams in the league played friendly and local games with each other. Following the end of World War II and the return of peace to France, professional football league competitions resumed in the country.

In the first season of the competitions after World War II, the number of teams participating in the league was increased to 18. This number remained constant until the 1965/66 season. It was this season that the number of professional league teams increased to 20 teams, and this number has remained unchanged until today.

In 2002, the league changed its name from Division 1 to League 1. However, since Uber Eats sponsored the Ligue 1 tournaments in 2020, League 1 has also been called Ligue 1 Uber Eats.

Ligue 1's competitions format

Everything about the Ligue 1

There are 20 teams in French Ligue 1. Each season, each team plays two matches against each of the other teams in the league. Usually one of these matches takes place in the home stadium of the team and the other match in the home stadium of the opposing team.

In an entire season, each team plays a total of 38 matches. The scoring system is such that the team receives three points for each win, each draw result receives 1 point and no points are awarded for the loss.

Teams are ranked primarily based on the points they have scored during the season. If the two teams are equal in terms of points scored, the second priority for ranking is the goal difference. If the result is still the same for both teams, the third priority of the ranking is the number of goals.

If, by considering all three ranking criteria, the results obtained by the two teams are still the same, the two teams will be placed in the same occupation.

But if the competition between two teams is equal to win the championship, or for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank.

Prior to 1995, the French Professional League used a system similar to the Bundesliga to determine which teams would be relegated to the second division and which would be promoted to the first division. In that system,  the league's format was direct relegation of the bottom two teams and a play-off between the third-last first-division team and the winner of the second-division play-offs.

Ligue 1 champions history

Everything about the Ligue 1

The French Ligue 1's champions history dates back to 1894. Although football was not yet professionally organized in France at the time, it was nevertheless the first official club championship in France.

Looking at Ligue 1 winners history, the first thing we see is that the first champions in the history of French football were the Standard Athletic Club, which on May 6, 1894, defeated the White Rovers team 2-0 and became the first French club champions.

Going a little further in the Ligue 1's history of winners, the first French football champion since becoming a professional is Olympique Lillois. On May 14, 1933, Olympique Lillois defeated Cannes 4-3 to achieve this historic honor.

Sète were crowned champions the following season (1934) and, in 1939, became the first professional club in France to win two Ligue 1's titles in history.

In the following, in the Ligue 1 winners list, we will share the number of championships and runners-up of League 1 clubs with you.

Ligue 1 logo history

Everything about the Ligue 1

The French Ligue 1 logo has changed many times throughout the history of professional games. Traditionally, the design of the French Ligue 1 logo uses the title of league sponsor.

Since 2002 alone, Ligue 1 has had three different sponsors. These three sponsors are:

  • Ligue 1 Orange (2002–2008)
  • Ligue 1 Conforama (2017–2020)
  • Ligue 1 Uber Eats (2020–present)

This year, since Uber Eats sponsored the French Ligue 1, a new logo has been designed for this league. In designing the new logo of League 1, in addition to changing the general design of the logo and making it simpler, the "Uber Eats" words has also been used.

In this article, we tried to give a brief overview of everything about League 1. Although the level of French Ligue 1 is lower than some other football leagues in the world, but the games of this league always have their own charm and the fanatical fans of the clubs of this league, support their favorite team with all their might.
