The LFP confirmed this afternoon that the worst four teams in Ligue 1 will be relegated at the end of the season in 2022/23, since the league would be reduced to 18 teams the following season.

As a result, at the end of next season, just two teams will be promoted from Ligue 2. According to RMC Sport, only Metz voted against the idea to reduce the number of teams in the top division during a general meeting of clubs in July.

The LFP, which governs France's top two leagues, has stated that the change is part of a larger revamp of the two leagues ahead of the next round of television rights, which begins in 2024.
