January traditionally rhymes with the Coupe de France for French football. While uncertainty has long hovered over the maintenance of the competition due to the health context and postponements of the qualifying rounds of amateur teams, the FFF has finally confirmed the holding of the latter, but with a whole new formula. Because yes, this year, the situation will be different for all participants.
Two routes and reunions between amateurs and professionals in the sixteenth
The draw for the Coupe de France set for January 7

On December 17, the French Football Federation reassured all the clubs by presenting its new table for the Coupe de France. This year, professional and amateur clubs will be separated into two lanes until the round of 16.
French Cup 2021 | Draw
8th and 32nd in the Men’s French Cup (L1 / L2) and 16th in the Women’s French Cup (D1)
The Ligue 2 clubs will enter the competition during an 8th round played exclusively between them on January 20. On this occasion, they will compete for ten tickets for the 32nd finals, where they will meet the twenty Ligue 1 clubs (dates to be determined).
From the round of 16, the fifteen qualified professional clubs (L1 and L2) will then find the seventeen lucky winners of the “way of other clubs”, which brings together amateur and semi-professional clubs. For the latter, the qualification route will be the same as for professionals until the 16th and will resume from the 5th round.
An almost similar model for the Women’s French Cup
For women, the format will be close to that adopted for men. D1 Arkema clubs will compete in a first round in the round of 16, scheduled for January 30 and 31. In the round of 16, the eight qualified will find eight survivors of the path of other clubs (clubs from D2 to lower divisions).
This Thursday, the draws for the 8th round with the Ligue 2 clubs, the 32nd final with the L1 and L2 clubs, as well as the round of 16 with the D1 Arkema teams are on the program. They will be followed live and in full this Thursday, January 7, from 5 p.m., on Eurosport 2, with Louis-Pierre Frileux, Thomas Bihel and Cléopatre Darleux, goalkeeper of Brest Handball and recent European handball vice-champion.
