If a slight cold wave is currently crossing the department of Mayenne, there is no doubt that you will find a little heat at the Francis Le Basser stadium, this Saturday, for the 8th round of the Coupe de France. Laval faces Le Mans. This is the famous « Maine derby ».
To give a good impression
A meeting always intense on the ground, as in stands. In a press release published this Thursday, Laurent Lairy, president of Stade Lavallois, and Thierry Gomez, president of Le Mans, call for a « big football party« and to avoid any overflow. »Football is a celebration shared by all stakeholders, players, staffs, supporters, the communicating environment, and sponsors. It is therefore important that we can give the best possible image of our sport that we love.« , they write.
A little less supporters than National?
For now, 300 Le Basser supporters are expected. A little less than 3,000 places were however sold in Laval, which seems surprising. During the National match on September 17, between the two teams (Tangos 2-1 victory), 6,201 spectators made the trip.
« Our two teams will therefore compete with the respective support of their supporters but in a respectful and professional spirit in order to elect the winner of the moment.« , hope the presidents. On the side of the Stade Lavallois, the ultra group of Laval Crew is still boycotting the meetings of his club.
