Ligue 1 Uber Eats: A championship in constant evolution
With top players such as Leo Messi, Neymar Jr., Vitinha, Alexandre Lacazette, Sergio Ramos, or the footballing explosion of figures such as Mbappé, the evolution and growth of French football within Ligue 1 Uber Eats has led to one of the biggest changes in international football in the major European leagues in recent years. French football itself demonstrates, through the successes of its national team, this evolution after the FIFA World Cup achieved by ‘Les Bleus’ in 2018 against Croatia.

Historic clubs such as Olympique de Marseille, and Olympique Lyonnais have many continental triumphs to their credit, and Ligue 1 Uber Eats has always played a very important role in nurturing international football with great stars who have led the top teams in world football.

Names such as Ronaldinho, Zidane and Karim Benzema are just a small representation of the many legends that French football has made known to the rest of the world after great performances in the competition.
