All French amateur leagues have been ended apart from the third tier and the women's top flight, the French FA (FFF) revealed in a statement. Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 are unaffected by this announcement.
'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.
In protest against a decision to allow Sochaux to remain in Ligue 2, Gazelec Ajaccio refused to field a team against Red Star on Friday.
