Breakdown of French women's soccer championship titles 1975-2020

With 14 won championships, it is Olympique Lyonnais (OL) who holds the largest number of French women's soccer titles, far ahead of FCF Juvisy/Paris FC with its six titles. Jean-Michel Aulas' team also holds the record for the most championships won in a row. Note that the 2019-2020 championship was stopped on the 16th day of the championship, and the OL (being in the lead on this day) obtained its 14th crown.

Women's soccer in France, a long fight for recognition

In 1932, the men of Olympique Lillois won the French soccer championship. While waiting for more than 40 years so that the French Football Federation organizes the first women's national championship, the players of the Stade de Reims Stadium won their first trophy. For the event, the match was broadcasted on French television. However, there were no more women's soccer broadcasts until the early 2000s, picking up the qualifying match for the 2003 World Cup.
Since the early 2000s and the good results that Olympique Lyonnais achieved on the European platfrom, as well as the results achieved by the national French team on an international level, women's soccer has been developing. Thus, in 2019, football was the fifth ranking sport in terms of number of women registered in a single-sport Olympic federation.
The French spectators finally seemed to be catching up with women's sports on television, as the women's world cup was the most expected sports event of the year, in 2019.

Women's sport, a growth sector for sport

Nowadays, inequalities in sports tend to decrease. In the past, an overwhelming majority of members of sports federations were men , but the gap has been narrowing every year since 2011. Even outside the federal circuit, women are taking the lead in physical activities. In 2019, more women than men reported that they practiced sport on a weekly basis.
