French Coupe de la Ligue, known outside France as the French League Cup. It was a knockout cup competition in French football organized by the Ligue de Football Professionnel. The tournament was established in 1993 and, unlike the Coupe de France, was only open to professional clubs in France which play in the country’s top three football divisions, though the third is not fully professional.
The most successful team in the competition was Paris Saint-Germain with nine wins, including the last edition in 2019–20. The LFP voted to suspend the competition indefinitely to “reduce the season schedule”
Another competition named Coupe de la Ligue existed from 1963 to 1965. In 1982, a Coupe d’Eté held before the start of the French league season; Stade Laval won the cup. This tournament continued under the name of Coupe de la Ligue, until 1994, before the beginning of the French season.
