All the amateur clubs still competing in the Coupe de France, in the round of 16 this weekend, awaited with impatience and apprehension the new announcements from the government. The ax fell – a maximum capacity of 5,000 people abroad – and will begin to affect the match between Vannes OC (Nacional 2) and PSG on Monday afternoon (9:10 pm), the first day of implementation of these measures. “It is necessarily frustrating, Reacts Maxime Ray, president of the VOC. Now, we still have a chance for this meeting to unfold. With curfew or closed door, it could have been worse. The reasons are obvious and go beyond the event. “
A feeling of reduced emptiness.
The poster will take place at the Rabine Stadium, which usually has a capacity for 9,600 spectators. Which should reduce the feeling of emptiness. It was already planned that an entire stand would be dedicated to the Parisian car park (around 500 people), so that the 4,500 residents of Vannes, in fact, will be sent to the remaining 7,000 seats. “It is less neutral, puts the leader in perspective. Now we must see how we will distribute our places. “
“The demand is estimated at 30,000 places in the Vannes region, not to mention Brittany. Obviously, we would have sold out in normal times. “
The initial idea was to reserve 3,000 for licensees, subscribers and partners, for whom the pre-sale has already been made, and as many for the general public (the box office opens on Wednesday). “The demand is estimated at 30,000 places in the Vannes region, not to mention Brittany, indicates Maxime Ray. Obviously, we would have sold out in normal times and filled the Moustoir. (in Lorient, 19,000 places) see Roazhon park (in Rennes, 29,000 places). But we also wanted to stay in our stadium and in our city. “ An ultimately inconsequential choice, the caliber is not proportional.
