Ligue 1 is the first division of football in France and was founded in 1932 under the name National. In only one year the name was changed in Division 1 and stayed with that name until 2002. From 2002 until now, the main football championship in France called Ligue 1.
Although Ligue 1 is not in the top 3 most competitive football championships, Ligue 1 is still quite competitive and ranks in the top 10 European football championships.
In Ligue 1 are found fairly strong teams like PSG, Monaco, Lyon or Marseille, teams that participate each year and reach far enough in European competitions.
The best result in recent years for the French teams is given by the evolution of the team Olimpique Lyon, which in the 2009/2010 season reached the Champions League semifinals.
Unlike other championships, in France the competition for the title is very strong and in the last years PSG made a very good impresion. The fight for the title is different from year to year depending on the investments made in each team, regarding investments PSG is the leader with hundreds of milions spent on players (Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, di María, Cavani and Lavezzi).
France's top teams are generally seen as competitive teams fitted together with competent players, but not as great as the teams from Spain, England or Germany, the exception is PSG which has a very strong team.
This Ligue 1 ranking is made up of 20 teams, of which the first two qualify directly for the Champions League and 3rd place play qualification, while 4th and 5th play for Europa League qualification. Places 18, 19 and 20 are automatically relegated to Ligue 2, while the first 3 places in the second division promote in Ligue 1.
