Ligue 1 - L1-L2: French football at its peak, lFP is being challenged - FRENCH FOOTBALL 1

At the end of the first stage, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 attracted a record number of spectators to the stadiums. A great pride for the Professional Football League.

Some may find it hard to believe, as the show is not always there… But according to figures from the Professional Football League, French football has never attracted so many people to stadiums! In fact, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 gathered 5.57 million viewers at the end of the first leg this season. A number never came, not even last year despite the 5.47 million people counted on the same date. However, it should be remembered that three matches have been postponed, namely Monaco-Paris Saint-Germain, Nimes-Rennes and Amiens-Reims.

PSG great craftsman

Not enough to avoid the 0.62% increase in Ligue 1, the elite that moved 4.24 million enthusiasts in the first leg (compared to 4.22 million last year). It is also worth noting the best filling rate in Ligue 1 (72.5%, 1.5%), thanks in particular to PSG, Strasbourg and Amiens, which have rates above 90%. As for Ligue 2, rising statistics are mainly due to the Racing Club of Lens. This is enough for the LFP and its ceo Didier Quillot to feel.

« These attendance records once again demonstrate the appeal of our two championships and also reward the work of professional clubs, the leader rejoiced. With the support of the LFP and its digital teams, clubs have professionalized in data collection and processing in order to better understand their audiences and offer ultra-segmented offers corresponding to their expectations. Today, hospitality and comfort in stadiums are just as important as transgaming.orgs signs to attract new audiences. »
