Start of next season (2017-2018 ?)

8 posts in this topic

Been informed Elite 1 season will start January 2018. What is the position with lower level clubs or are all seasons starting January 2018 ? 

Planning visit to Avignon in November 2017 and wanted to take in game or 2.

What is the reason behind the late start?

Believe it's partly because of World Cup but also due to lack of teams in Elite 1 to avoid clubs playing one another possibly 4 times a season.

Better try the FFR XIII then as nobody on here seems to know.

FFR XIII say fixtures released around 20th July so will update after then.

All FFR XIII can tell me is season starts end of September but fixtures still not finalised !

Might this be part of a little-by-little approach to get the French game playing to the same spring-summer-autumn season as the British one?  For example, just two years ago the final of La Coupe de France Lord Derby was in mid-April; now it is set for mid-June.
