List Of Coupe De La Ligue Winners

The Coupe de la Ligue is a knockout cup competition in French football organised by the Ligue de Football Professionnel and comprises clubs of France's top football division, Ligue 1, France's second division, Ligue 2, and the third division, the Championnat National. The current competition was established relatively late in 1994 but another competition named Coupe de la Ligue existed from 1963 to 1965 and in 1982, a Coupe d'Été (later also called Coupe de la Ligue) was held before the start of the French league season.

The most successful clubs in the history of the current Coupe de la Ligue are Paris Saint-Germain, Bordeaux and Marseille. They have had the honor of winning the cup three times. Bordeaux have also made the most appearances in the final. Including this year's final, they have appeared in the final match five times. The venue for the final was the Parc des Princes for its first three years, until it was moved to the Stade de France. Paris Saint-Germain and Strasbourg are the only clubs to have won the cup at both stadiums. In 2000, Gueugnon became the first team outside the top French league to win the tournament.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or winners:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Lovers, forget your love,
    And list to the love of these,
    She a window flower,
    And he a winter breeze.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The two real political parties in America are the Winners and the Losers. The people don’t acknowledge this. They claim membership in two imaginary parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, instead.
    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)
