Ligue 1 will retain its 20-club format for the 2020-21 season, the French league's governing body has announced.

The French top flight and Ligue 2 were suspended in March and cancelled in April due to the coronavirus pandemic and the French Football League (LFP) have reviewed how many clubs would make up Ligue 1.

An LFP statement read: "Meeting this Tuesday, 23 June, the General Assembly of the LFP adopted by a majority of 74.49% of the votes cast the resolution proposed by the Board of Directors to maintain the format of Ligue 1 at 20 clubs for the 2020-2021 season.

"This vote came after an in-depth examination of the sports challenges of a Ligue 1 to 20, 21 or 22 clubs on the 2020-2021 competition calendar and the consequences on the players' health."

The statement added: "Following this decision and at the end of the Federal Assembly of the FFF on 26 June, the LFP will convene on 26 June a Board of Directors which will adopt the general calendar of competitions for the 2020-2021 season."

Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 were cancelled on a points-per-game basis, with Paris Saint-Germain named champions.

But the relegation of Amiens and Toulouse from Ligue 1 and the promotion of Lorient and Lens from Ligue 2 were suspended when the State Council, France's administrative court, ruled that the LFP must re-examine the structure of its top two divisions.
