The syndicate of Ligue 1 clubs has published a report on the expected losses the French football league can expect to face as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the decision to end the season in France early with PSG crowned champions due to the spread of Covid-19.

The report suggests that Ligue 1 has shed €605 million worth of income over the course of the current season, with total losses across all of France’s divisions of €1.27 billion.

Ligue 1 to lose €650m next season

In 2020-21 the study anticipates losses of €650 million for Ligue 1 clubs over the course of the season, a situation exacerbated by Ligue 1 stadiums only being permitted to hold 5,000 spectators until 31 December. The 2020-21 season is due to start on 22 August
