The French soccer league has called off Saturday's game between Monaco and Montpellier because three Montpellier players have contracted swine flu.

The LFP said in a statement Thursday that a new date for the match will be decided next week. The players were not named.

Last month, Marseille's home game against rival Paris Saint-Germain was called off six hours before kickoff because PSG players Ludovic Giuly, Mamadou Sakho and Jeremy Clement had swine flu.
