This is a list of foreign players in the Ligue 1, which commenced play in 1932. The following players must meet both of the following two criteria:

  1. Have played at least one Ligue 1 game. Players who were signed by Ligue 1 clubs, but only played in lower league, cup and/or European games, or did not play in any competitive games at all, are not included.
  2. Are considered foreign, i.e., outside France and its dependencies (Guadeloupe, Martinique or French Polynesia), determined by the following:
A player is considered foreign if he is not eligible to play for the national teams of France.

More specifically,

  • If a player has been capped on international level, the national team is used; if he has been capped by more than one country, the highest level (or the most recent) team is used. These include French players with dual citizenship. Players who played for France but came as foreign players (such as Miguel Angel Lauri) are also listed.
  • If a player has not been capped on international level, his country of birth is used, except those who were born abroad from French parents or moved to France at a young age, and those who clearly indicated to have switched his nationality to another nation.

Clubs listed are those that the player has played at least one Ligue 1 game for.

Seasons listed are those that the player has played at least one Ligue 1 game in. Note that seasons, not calendar years, are used. For example, "1992-95" indicates that the player has played in every season from 1992-93 to 1994-95, but not necessarily every calendar year from 1992 to 1995.

In bold: players that have played at least one Ligue 1 game in the current season (2009-10), and the clubs they've played for. They include players that have subsequently left the club, but do not include current players of a Ligue 1 club that have not played a Ligue 1 game in the current season.
