Junior Sports Minister Thierry Braillard with French football officials took the decision on Tuesday to allow Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches to go ahead under heavy security but without away fans.
     
"Sporting competitions must continue because if we suspend them that is what these barbaric people want, which is to destabilize our daily way of life," explained Braillard.
     
League President Frederic Thiriez said security forces across the country were too stretched to allow fans to travel.
     
Speaking ahead of Tuesday's friendly between England and France at Wembley he said,"The Interior Ministry does not have sufficient mobilized forces to guarantee at the same time the presence of away supporters and overall security."
     
Popular sports daily L'Equipe paid tribute to the United Kingdom after fans sang La Marseillaise ahead of the match, as part of a series of tributes.
