**Abstract:** In a 1981 survey on cycles in digraphs, Bermond and Thomassen conjectured that every digraph with minimum outdegree at least $2k-1$ contains $k$ disjoint cycles. In 2010, Lichiardopol conjectured a stronger property for tournaments: for positive integers $k$ and $q$ with $q\ge3$, every tournament with minimum out-degree at least $(q-1)k-1$ contains $k$ disjoint cycles of length $q$.

Bang-Jensen, Bessy, and Thomassé [2014] proved the special case of the Bermond--Thomassen Conjecture for tournaments. This implies the case $q=3$ of Lichiardopol's Conjecture. The case $q=4$ was proved in a masters thesis by S. Zhu [2019]. We give a uniform proof for $q\ge5$, thus completing the proof of Lichiardopol's Conjecture. This result is joint work with Fuhong Ma and Jin Yan of Shandong University.
