All professional football in France suspended until further notice

Following yesterday's presidential announcement regarding the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Directors of the LFP voted unanimously this morning (Friday 13 March) to suspend with immediate effect the Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 championships.

As President Macron put it in his official address to the nation, the collective interest must come first. The priority now is to slow down the epidemic, protect the most vulnerable and avoid unnecessary travel.

An emergency meeting of UEFA is scheduled for March 17, after which the Directors of the LFP will meet again to discuss further measures.
