Attacking Play Table[edit]

Ligue 1 has introduced an Attacking Play Table since the start of the 2006/2007 Ligue 1 season to encourage the scoring of more goals in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. The LFP, with the help of the former France manager Michel Hidalgo introduced the idea to reward those teams who score the most goals. Independent from the official league table, points are awarded as follows:

Outcome Point(s)
Loss 0
Draw 1
Victory by one goal 2
Victory by multiple goals 3

The sum of 20 million Euros, taken from the LFP’s new commercial ventures in 2006/2007 will be dedicated to this initiative. €16.7 million will go to Ligue 1. Prize money is distributed to the teams at the end of the season depending on where they finish in the table.
