Edouard Philippe: no sporting events will be permitted unit September in France

It has been announced by the French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe that in the midst of the ongoing fight against coronavirus until September no sporting events will be allowed to take place and confirmed that Ligue 1 could not resume before then.

The Ligue 1 season will be ended by play-offs, since the 19-20 season was postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic, profess Jean-Michel Aulas.

On Tuesday at a national assembly the Prime Minister said “Till September, no major sporting activities can happen. We can’t go back to the 2019-20 football season.”

But, Aulas claims that games that were played on a one-off basis behind closed doors might cause the season to be played.

UEFA has also confirmed that they desire all domestic league seasons finished by August 2, and that the qualifying for next season’s continental tournaments will be based on “sporting merit” rather than on any other arbitrary grounds.

Aulas said: “I read what UEFA said carefully, they wanted us to go all the way to the end of the tournaments, even though we would have to compete on a shortened basis and in August.”
