Petit Poucet from Versailles forced to play his semi-final in Nice
The Versaillese will therefore not have played a poster at home in the Coupe de France. Unable to play in their stadium because of its too close proximity to the famous castle and infrastructures not suitable for a semi-final, the Ile-de-France residents worked to find an enclosure capable of hosting their semi-final.
After a refusal from the Parc des Princes, which must change its lawn over the period, the leaders turned to Charléty. The prefecture vetoed it because of the difficult security of the stadium.
Last option: play … Lens. As assured by the general manager of the club, Versailles has asked Racing. But after a new refusal, Petit Poucet resolved to play in Nice. The players would have given their agreement to go to the Côte d’Azur.
