    Thursday will take place the draw for the Coupe de France 2021 with the entry into the running of professional clubs. The same day, Jean Castex and Olivier Véran, respectively Prime Minister and Minister of Health, will hold a press conference where they will take stock of the health situation and detail the government’s new measures.

    The latest data and the progress of the virus do not seem to go towards a relaxation of the instructions. This could postpone or even compromise the resumption of amateur football matches and therefore the holding of the Coupe de France. At the Federation, we are impatiently awaiting the next decisions of the State.

    Among the sports and political decision-makers, an idea is being considered: to “sanctify” certain events and in particular the Coupe de France because of its popular and historical character. Implied: the clubs which are still in contention, even amateurs, could be authorized to resume training in order to play the matches of the event.
