The 2019–20 Ligue 1 season, also known as Ligue 1 Conforama for sponsorship reasons, was a French association football tournament within Ligue 1. It was the 82nd season since its establishment. The season began on 9 August 2019 and was scheduled to end on 23 May 2020. The league was declared to be abandoned on 28 April.

On 13 March 2020, the LFP suspended Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 indefinitely following the coronavirus pandemic. On 28 April 2020, it was announced that Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 campaigns would not resume, after the country banned all sporting events until September. On 30 April 2020, Paris Saint-Germain were awarded the championship following the cancellation of the 2019–20 season. PSG topped the standings by 12 points with a game in hand at the time the league was halted. Marseille and Rennes were awarded the other two UEFA Champions League spots based on their rankings at the league's suspension.

Teams

Twenty teams competed in the league, with Metz and Brest were promoted from the 2018–19 Ligue 2, replacing the two relegated teams from the 2018–19 Ligue 1, Caen and Guingamp.
