Ligue 1 to cut clubs from 20 to 18 from 2023


The expansion went to the vote at the professional football league's (LFP) general assembly on Thursday, with 97.28% giving it the green light.

The LFP also decided that from the end of the 2022-23 season, relegation from Ligue 1 will be fixed at four clubs, with just two promoted from Ligue 2.
