Change of plan for OM in the Coupe de France
Opposed to ES Cannet-Rocheville fans in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France on December 19, OM will organize the match at the Vélodrome.
Resident of National 3, Cannet-Rocheville won the jackpot by falling on OM during the draw of the 32e of the Coupe de France. Given their great difference in level in terms of divisions, the two clubs had to find themselves on the field of amateurs, December 19 at 1:45 p.m.. Only lack of stadium meeting the safety standards required to accommodate such a poster, Cannet-Rocheville will have to go to the Vélodrome.
” We were happy to welcome OM, heavyweight in Ligue 1, but the dream turned into a nightmare “, Deplored this Monday at a press conference the president of ES Cannet-Rocheville, Emmanuel Stella. While they were targeting the Pierre-de-Coubertin stadium in Cannes – with the approval of the municipality – to receive this gala poster, the leaders of the Riviera encountered the refusal of the prefecture, which fears overflows echoing the passive the deplorable Nice-OM match played – and interrupted – at the start of the season.
Louis-II was considered
Finally, while OM did not want to assume the 350,000 euros that the organization of a match at the Vélodrome stadium requires as a base, this last option will be chosen – preferred to the alternatives once mentioned by default (Monaco, Istres or Martigues). RMC reports that the Marseillais ” have agreed to assume certain financial losses related to the organization of the match “. A relief undoubtedly for ES Cannet-Rocheville.
