French Ligue 1

The recent foreign investment in teams such as Monaco and Paris St Germain has led to some of the biggest names (and transfer fees) been associated with the league and a return to success in European competition.

Since first been formed in 1932 as national, French top flight football may have gone through a number of name changes but it has remained the top flight competition in France and has had a reputation for been a combative league.

Ligue 1 is known for been strong defensively, which has led to some critics, but it also makes if different to many other European Leagues and exciting to those who like the competitive nature to matches.

Ligue 1 acts as both the method for determining the national champions each season but also as the main way for French clubs to enter European competitions including the Champions League and Europa League.

For a country with such large resources, big cities and good facilities the clubs in Ligue 1 haven’t been able to produce success on a European scale to the level you would expect but with crowds on the up and the resources of the bigger clubs ready to explode it surly can’t be long until the French Ligue 1 produces a club to win a European competition.

Both Paris St Germaine and Monaco’s spending has brought much attention to Ligue 1 which has led to a number of fans wanting to watch the action for the first time.

Unfortunately watching live football from France can be quite difficult for many or at least that was the case before the internet and SportsStream.co.uk!

History

The league can be traced back to the decision of the French Football Federation to establish a professional national football league competition in 1930, with the league originally known as Division 1 between 1933-2002.

Prior to that, football in the country was amateur and mainly regional, although Coupe de France (the French domestic cup competition) did act as a national title of sorts as it brought together clubs from all of the regional league to compete in a knockout competition.

During the early amateur years, it was Standard Athletic Club from Paris who won the first league title when they defeated The White Rovers.

It was Standard and Roubaix who dominated the game during the amateur era.

The title was split between clubs in the north and clubs in the south before Marseille won the final amateur title in 1929.

The first professional champions in France were Olympique Lillois, the predecessor of Lille, who defeated Cannes in 1993 to win the first pro title.

Sete won the next title and the 1938-39 title to become the first team to win more than one title.

Lille won the first title after the war, which was also their first title overall.

Over the years there have been a number of clubs who have dominated decade with Reims winning 4 titles in the 50’s whilst Saint-Etienne won 4 straight in the late 60’s and 3 in the 70’s.

The 1980’s were dominated in the first part by Bordeaux whilst Marseille win 5 straight titles between 1988-89 to 1991-92, with the 1985-86 season seeing PSG winning their first ever title.

The 1990’s saw the title spread around number of club before Lyon dominated things into the new millennium, with their first ever title coming in the 2001-02 season that started a run of 7 straight wins ending by winning the 2007-08 title.

The next team to dominate was Paris St Germain who won 4 straight titles starting in 2012-13 and 8 of the next 10 starting in that same season.
