The LFP suspends the Coupe de la Ligue
The LFP has announced that the Coupe de la Ligue will be suspended as of the end of the 2019-20 edition.
At a meeting on 18 September, the Board of Directors and the General Assembly of the LFP decided to suspend the Coupe de la Ligue as of the end of the 2019-2020 edition. Depending on market conditions, the LFP reserves the right to restart this competition later.
This decision will lighten the competition schedule, give players more recovery time and offer an additional place in the European cups via Ligue 1 ranking at the end of the 2020-2021 season.
