June 30 (Reuters) - There will be no extra time in French Cup games as of next season, with the exception of the final, the French football federation (FFF) said on Tuesday.

"From the first round up to and including the semi-finals, in the event of a draw at the end of time, the game should be directly decided on penalties," the minutes of the FFF's executive committee, published by French sports daily L'Equipe, showed.

The French Professional League made the same decision for the League Cup four years ago. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
