Ligue 1 Launch Top Scoreur Badge for League's Leading Goal Scorer

Ligue 1 Uber Eats, the top-tier professional football league in France, have introduced a new and innovative system to celebrate the league's top scorers.

Ligue 1 Top Scoreur Badge

The new Ligue 1 badge for the top goalscorer is called the S1 badge. It will be affixed to the Top Scoreur's shirt on each new matchday.

The Ligue 1 Top Scoreur badge is a combination of the letter 'S' for 'Scoreur' and the number '1' joined together on a circuit that illustrates the race among the goalscorers. The badge is designed by Tyrsa, an artist who has already made a name for himself on a number of occasions in collaboration with prestigious brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Moncler.

The first badge will be presented to Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé, who is currently the top scorer in the league with 13 goals so far this season.

Ligue 1 are not the first with the idea of special badges for individual players. In the 2019-2020 season, Serie A introduced badges for the best goalkeeper, best defender, best midfielder, best striker, best youngster and the best player of the previous season (which was Cristiano Ronaldo). CR7 refused to wear the shirts with the awards to "show respect" to his teammates.
