While previous shirt number legislation restricted Ligue 1 teams and prevented the allocation of fanciful numbers, this will change. Indeed, the Professional Football League has decided to modify this for the 2022/2023 season.
From now on, the various Ligue 1 teams will have more freedom in the allocation of numbers since whole numbers from 1 to 99 can be used. A rule remains and it is quite logical, number 1 will be reserved for goalkeepers.
🔢 An edit @LFPfr relating to the numbers of the players’ jerseys will be made from the 2022-23 season, numbering of the jerseys with whole numbers from 1 to 99 is authorized, it being understood that number 1 is exclusively reserved for goalkeepers. pic.twitter.com/5k1ZxzQetw
