During that time, the tournament was held separately in different regions. According to the ranking of the European Football League, the top 3 teams in the French league will be entitled to play in the UEFA Champions League next season (the first two teams get straight to the group stage, the third team must go through first type). The 4th and 5th ranked teams with the French Cup winning team will be allowed to participate in the UEFA Cup.
