Ligue 1 Could Resume With Play-offs Before August 2 – UEFA

Ligue 1 could resume with play-offs before August 2 despite the fact the top-flight season has been voided, UEFA have said.
French prime minister Edouard Philippe announced the cancellation of all sporting events across the country on April 28, amid the ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Football authorities subsequently voided the 2019-20 campaign, with final positions in both Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 decided on a points-per-game basis.

Ceferin wrote in an official UEFA communication on Friday:

“We would first of all like to clarify that it is the competence of national associations to decide on the format of their domestic competitions, in particular by taking into account the circumstances and restrictive measures specific to the country.

“As mentioned by UEFA a few weeks ago, the French authorities’ decision to cancel the season was taken relatively early.

“Nevertheless, and provided that the national associations are able to coordinate with the competent national authorities a potential restart of domestic competition, August 2, 2020, would be an appropriate date to end the domestic competitions.”
