France’s Ligue 1 is to decrease its number of clubs from 20 to 18 from the 2023-24 season, according to Jean-Pierre Caillot, the representative of first division clubs. 

The expansion went to the vote at the professional football league’s (LFP) general assembly on Thursday, with 97.28 per cent giving it the green light.

The LFP also decided that from the end of the 2022-23 season, relegation from Ligue 1 will be fixed at four clubs, with just two promoted from Ligue 2.
