The French Football Federation (FFF) has confirmed that the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue finals will take place on July 24 and July 31 respectively.

Both finals were postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic. All sporting events in France were halted to minimise the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

The French Ligue 1 was ended prematurely and Paris Saint-Germain awarded the title after final places were awarded on points-per-game basis. The FFF however delayed the decision on Cup finals.

The FFF announced the provisional dates on Friday, with Coupe de France final between Paris Saint-Germain and Saint Etienne set for July 24.

PSG will then play Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue final a week later.

Up to 5,000 fans will be allowed into the Stade de France where the two games will be played. The French authorities confirmed last week that stadiums will be open at a reduced capacity.

The Coupe de la Ligue will cease to run from next season after French football authorities opted to suspend the tournament indefinitely to ease congestion of fixtures.
