The trophy of the Ligue 1: hexagoal

In 1894 the first football championship was organized in France, the so-called Union des sociétés françaises de sports athlétiques (USFSA) with the participation of five teams from the city of Paris (Standard AC, White-Rovers, Club Français, Neuilly and Asnières) and adopting the direct elimination formula. The first «Division 1» in the history of French football had 8 Parisian teams: Standard AC, White-Rovers, Club Français, Neuilly, Asnières, United SC, Paris Star and UA 1.er arrondissement. Standard won two titles and then Club Français was champion in 1896.

Since then 18 regional leagues were created throughout the French territory, the Northern League (Ligue du Nord) was the first in 1918. This anarchy in French football caused that between 1920 and 1932 the reference competition was the Cup of France. In 1919 the Féderation Française de Football Association (FFFA) was born. In 1926 the French Amateur Championship (Championnat de France Amateur) was created, contested by the regional champions. The five champions of the best regional leagues disputed the Division of Excellence (Division d'Excellence), the next five the Division of Honor (Division d'Honneur) and the five worst the Division of Promotion (Division de Promotion). The third division was subsequently suppressed, but this championship was abandoned after its third season.

In 1932 and after a long debate, professional football settled in France. This prompted the creation of a national league championship, since until then only several regional tournaments were played, in addition to the French Cup.

On September 11, 1932, the first day of what was initially called National Championship. Two groups were organized, of ten teams each, whose respective champions, AS Cannes and Olympique Lillois faced each other in a final for the title, in which they prevailed the second.

The following season the single group format was adopted, with 14 teams, and the championship was renamed 1 Division, name that lasted until 2002 before changing to its current name Ligue 1. AS Saint-Étienne, Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain are the three teams that have won the most French championships with ten, nine and nine titles, respectively. Parisians are the reigning champions of the competition.

Competition system

Twenty clubs currently participate in the league, playing each other against each other twice, once in their own field and the other in the opposite field. There are a total of 38 days, which take place between the months of August and May of the following year. The match schedule is established by lottery prior to the start of the championship.

The winner of a match gets three points, the loser does not score points, and in the event of a tie there is one point for each team. At the end of the championship, the team that accumulates the most points is proclaimed champion of the French league and qualifies for the UEFA Champions League, along with the second classified. The third classified disputes the third previous round. The fourth classified obtains a place for the UEFA Europa League, along with the champion of the Cup and League Cup. The last two teams descend directly to the Ligue 2 and the penultimate team plays the promotion against a team from the second division, so that each team is replaced the following season by the first classified in this category.
