French league votes to keep 20-team 1st division next season

Published Fri Jun 19 2020 12:46:32 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The French league has voted to keep a 20-team first division next season despite a court’s decision to suspend the relegations of Amiens and Toulouse to the second division. The league says that there were 23 votes for a 20-team league and two abstentions. The proposal needs to be upheld at the league's general assembly on Tuesday. On June 9 France’s highest administrative court maintained the league’s decision to cancel the domestic season amid the coronavirus pandemic while suspending the relegations. The league consulted France's soccer federation in arguing that a 22-team league is not feasible.
