The Coupe de la Ligue (French pronunciation: [kup də la liɡ]), known outside France as the French League Cup, is a knockout cup competition in French football organized by the Ligue de Football Professionnel. The tournament was established in 1994 and, unlike the Coupe de France, is only open to professional clubs in France which play in country's top three football divisions, though only four professional clubs currently play in the Championnat National.
Paris Saint-Germain are the current champions, having defeated Monaco 4–1 for a record seventh title in the 2016-2017 competition. For over 20 years from its inception, finals of the tournament were only held in the Paris area: the first three were at the Parc des Princes and the rest at the Stade de France. This changed in September 2016 when the LFP announced that the next three finals would be held in Lyon, Bordeaux and Lille respectively.
