Ligue 1 sits at the top level of professional football in France. It has added the name Ligue 1 Conforama for the coming season due to sponsorship reasons. There are 20 clubs in Ligue 1, with the most dominant over the past 7 years being Paris Saint-Germain, having collected five of the past six league trophies. The Ligue 1 is one of very few leagues in European football that has a “cross-border” competition. Monaco play in this league, and have taken the trophy eight times. There is no promotion from Ligue 1, but the top three teams qualify for the UEFA Champions League. Fourth place qualify for the Europa League. Two further Europa League places are determined by domestic cup competitions, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue.
