(JFC, with jot) – The prize list of the BGL Ligue 2019-2020 will remain forever virgin. Due to the coronavirus crisis, the board of directors of the Football Federation has indeed decided not to award the title of champion at the end of the current season. In addition, there will be no team relegated to Promotion of Honor, so that the 2020-2021 competition of the Luxembourg football elite will bring together 16 teams instead of the traditional 14. Any benefit for Mühlenbach and Rodange, who currently occupy the two tilting seats.

Fola Esch, leader of the classification with two points ahead of Progress after 17 days when the competition stopped on March 12, will have to postpone their hopes of eighth title, five years after their last conquest. In the absence of a title, the dean club should however ratify its participation in the next preliminary rounds of the Champions League. So decided the FLF, while awaiting final confirmation from UEFA. In the same logic, Le Progrès (second when the championship ended), Differdange 03 (third) and Union Titus Pétange (fourth) should take part in the next Europa League at the request of the FLF at UEFA.

The FLF has made an identical decision regarding the 2019-2020 Women’s Ligue 1 and Division 1 futsal championships. Much to the chagrin of Racing FCUL and FC Differdange 03, respectively leaders in the ladies and in futsal when the competition stopped.

As a reminder, the FLF last week decreed the permanent cessation of all senior championships in lower divisions (from PH to D3) by freezing the rankings as established at the time of stopping competitions. Thus, the amounts and descendants are those who occupy these places in the current state of the hierarchy. This is how FC Wiltz and Swift Hesperange prematurely won their ticket for the elite next season.
