LFP Ligue de Football Professionnel
The LFP organises, manages, and regulates the Ligue 1 Uber Eats, the Ligue 2 BKT, the Champions Trophy, the EA Ligue 1 Games and the eligue1.
The main objectives of LFP’s CSR strategy are to assist and advise our clubs, initiate national awareness campaigns, and promote these good practices throughout our networks, nationally and internationally.
The LFP CSR strategy focuses on three main pillars:
- Fighting against all types of discrimination,
- Protecting the environment,
- Childhood protection.
The plan to fight against all types of discrimination is based on three means of action:
Raising awareness among the general public (with dedicated championships days and/or digital campaigns),
Education and prevention through awareness-raising workshops (tailormade for each specific public: players, coaches, team managers, administrative staff, or even supporters),
Identifying and following behaviours in stadiums (online reporting form, and working with Bodyguard to fight online hate speech).
Regarding the protection of the environment, the LFP and the clubs are moving forward to assess their carbon footprint and define a low carbon strategy. They are also continuously working with their entire ecosystem to suppress single-use plastic, develop responsible catering, improve sustainable transportation, and reduce waste.
Thirdly, the LFP and the clubs are raising awareness about Childhood Protection, to relay the 119 number, a specific helpline for victims or witnesses by organising a dedicated matchday on the field combined with a big tournament for hundreds of kids.
Another long-term programme is the full support of professional football to the Bleuet de France, the National Office for war veterans and victims of terrorist attacks. With Frank Leboeuf as our ambassador, a dedicated matchday is organised every year in November since 2018, to raise awareness and to remember. 150 football jerseys embroidered with the Bleuet were sold at auction, raising € 55.000 for the Bleuet de France.
