Paris Saint-Germain have been awarded the Ligue 1 title after the season was ended amid the Covid-19 crisis, the French League (LFP) said on Thursday.
PSG had a 12-point lead over second-placed Marseille when the season was suspended as part of French government’s measures to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus last month. The LFP also crowned Lorient as Ligue 2 champions in a conference call.
“We have decided there would be two promotions and two relegations,” Didier Quillot, the chief executive of the French League, told a news conference. It means Amiens and Toulouse will be relegated and Lorient and Lens will be promoted.
“There might be appeals but our decisions are solid,” Quillot said while also saying the LFP has until 25 May to tell Uefa which clubs would be qualified for European competitions.
