The dates have been confirmed for the end-of-season relegation/promotion play-offs.
Last season saw the return of the play-offs, with ESTAC Troyes finishing third in Ligue 2 and then beating FC Lorient over two legs to win promotion to Ligue 1 Conforama. That meant that Lorent, who had come 18th in the top flight, were relegated.
This season there is a new innovation, with the clubs finishing fourth and fifth in the second tier also taking part in an expanded play-off set-up. Here is the confirmed schedule:
