“The international development of Ligue 1 Uber Eats remains one of the priorities of the LFP. Our goal is to always better expose French clubs internationally, to raise awareness of Ligue 1 Uber Eats to abroad and in particular in the Middle East, “the deputy general manager of the League, Mathieu Ficot, announced in a press release on Thursday.
It is customary for the Champions Trophy to take place abroad. In recent years, for example, it has been organized in Canada, Tunisia, Morocco, the United States, Gabon, Austria and several times in China. But due to health restrictions linked to the coronavirus, the last Champions Trophy had to be postponed and be held in France. On January 13, in Lens, PSG dominated OM (2-1) and won their tenth Champions Trophy thanks to goals from Mauro Icardi and Neymar.
Meeting this Thursday, the board of directors of the LFP also decided to postpone the multiplexes of the 37th and 38th days of Ligue 1. Initially scheduled for Saturday May 15 and 22 at 9 p.m., they are now scheduled for Sunday May 16 and 23 at 21h.
