Rouen succumbs to the fever of the Coupe de France, with or without Dembi …

-

Crowd of big days this Wednesday morning in front of the Diochon stadium in Rouen (Seine-Maritime) for the opening of the ticket office for the Coupe de France match between the local Red Devils (N2) and the SCO professionals from Angers, who are playing in Ligue 1. On the sidewalk, the tail stretches to the neighboring cemetery. Hundreds of supporters wait impatiently, but calmly, for the counters to finally open.

Some arrived at 7 a.m. like Mickaël, a sports instructor in a club in the Oison valley. “It is a pleasure to rediscover this enthusiasm. I came with my father when the club was going well. And I come back to it regularly. “

As for subscribers, Jean-Denis, 73, arrived around 9 a.m. “I suspected there would be people. Everybody talks about it. “His first games, he lived them from his 4 years. “My best memory? The return match at Highbury Stadium in London against Arsenal in 1970. “We had a draw in the first leg. And we lose on a goal in the 87th. But it was a nice party. “

On the other side of the counters, the tension is palpable. For such an event, the stadium will be sold out. The last comparable event dates back to 2013 against Olympique de Marseille, still in the Coupe de France. A gala match like this is around 100,000 euros in revenue for the club… if the professionals are willing to give up their share.

But the 12,000 seats in the precinct will not be enough to please everyone on Sunday. “If the Lenoble (Editor’s note: the most popular forum) had made 10,000 places, we would have sold everything, “says Frédéric Lieury, secretary general of the FC Rouen association and general insurance agent in the civil sector. “We suspected that the supporters would be there. And we will certainly open the edges to try to please as many people as possible. ” This Wednesday, early afternoon, all the seats were sold. Thursday morning, there should be a few hundred places along the railings. Notice to latecomers.
