One of the first countries that comes to mind when it comes to European football is of course France. And we did a detailed research on the French leagues, which is such an important league, and I want to share this with you now.
As most of you know, the leagues in France continue in the form of Ligue 1, Ligue 2 and National, ie regional leagues, respectively. Of course, there are more local leagues, in other words amateur clusters, but we will give priority to these leagues since the first two leagues are generally the part that concerns the bettors.
Let’s start with the first league of France, Ligue 1. Ligue 1 is the top league. Founded in 1932, there are mostly twenty football teams in this league, although it changes from time to time. According to the score table as a result of the matches in Ligue 1, one of the best leagues in Europe, the teams in the last three places are relegated to the lower league.
In addition, we should not forget the players such as Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini and T. Henry, who succeeded in making their name known to the world thanks to the French leagues and impressed with their football skills.
In the league, which includes some Monaco football teams, the team that has been seen as the most successful since the league’s establishment is the Saint Etienne team with ten championships. Speaking for the 2020-2021 season, Lille is the first in the league, followed by Paris St Germain, one of the biggest and well-established teams of France, then Olympique Lion, Monaco and Marseille. Ligue 1, which is also included in the UEFA confederation, became the champion of the last season, namely the champion of the 2019-2020 season, the Paris Saint Germain football team.
Ligue 2 comes after Ligue 1, which is the highest quality league, and we have just said this. Ligue 2, the second tier French league, was founded in 1933. It has twenty football team clubs, similar to Ligue 1. Nancy and Le Havre football clubs are among the most stable and successful teams of this league, with five championships each. According to the league order in France, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 in France are known as Ligue de Football Professionnel. After these leagues, Championnat National Ligue, which corresponds to the regional league, comes. Another name of the national league is known as Division 3 according to some sources. Known to be founded in 1993, the league is home to twenty football teams.
Championnat de France Amateur, also known as Division 4 after the National League, is an amateur cluster consisting of four groups. The amateur football league allows a total of sixty football teams to compete. The teams rising from the regional amateur league founded in 1927 compete in other leagues respectively.
