French FA intend to cancel non-professional football

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 65

'L'équipe' assures that the French Football Association intend to permanently suspend all non-professional leagues and championships. Previously, they had been left in the air with the intention of being resumed.

The decision is close to being official. Noël Le Graet, president of the French Football Association, is one step away from putting a definitive end to non-professional football in his country. This is everything but Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.

Which championships, or at least, which of the most important will remain unfinished? The Championnat National, which is the 3rd division, la Ligue CFA and the Ligue CFA 2, which are the 4th and 5th tiers respectively.

The rest of the tournaments which haven't been mentioned in the previous paragraph will also be completely suspended. Formative football, that of even lower categories, youth leagues, children's leagues, and other divisions, the same. 

As far as Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 are concerned, it was not long ago that the idea of the Federation was to return in mid-June. This proposal, if made official, would clash head-on with the plan of UEFA and ECA (European Club Association).
