No professional sports in France until September

No professional sport will be occurring in France until September. The 2019-2020 seasons for all domestic professional sports leagues, including professional soccer in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, will not be completed either in public or behind closed doors.

The Tour de France had been rescheduled by the International Cycling Union for August 29th to September 20th, 2020. The statement leaves a degree of uncertainty about the status of the Tour de France, which was not specifically mentioned by Edouard Philippe in ruling out sport before the start of September.
