The draw for the Coupe de France took place this Thursday, January 7. A draw necessarily special because of health restrictions still in force. To maintain competition, the French football federation has chosen to adapt by separating amateur clubs from professional clubs.
Ligue 2 clubs are making their entry into the 8th round and ten of them will end up in the 32nd final when Ligue 1 clubs enter the competition. Amateurs and professionals will meet in the round of 16. For women, the principle is the same.
