As we announced this Saturday in our columns, the last championship match of the FBBP 01 at home will not be played in Verchère. The two resident teams of the stadium must indeed receive on May 6…
US Bressane, who will perhaps play for his maintenance in Pro D2 against Colomiers, and the Blues therefore, who should compete for one of the first three places in the championship against Annecy, current second in National.
Official announcement early next week
Yesterday, three options were on the table: the Olympique Lyonnais reserve ground in Décines, but also the Gueugnon and Louhans stadiums.
Saturday evening, after the victory of the Burgians against Boulogne-sur-Mer, David Venditelli, the president of FBBP 01, was more specific: “There are still a few details to settle but we will probably go to Lyon. We visited the Gueugnon and Louhans facilities, but Lyon has better infrastructure with Groupama, especially for our partners, “he announced at a press conference, while playing appeasement with the neighbors of rugby and the agglomeration. .
“We are going to Lyon without bitterness, we must not get the wrong objective. We hope to transform this difficulty into an opportunity to unite the Burgiens and Bressans who support us”. This decision should be formalized at the beginning of next week.
As a reminder, this stadium has a capacity of 2,800 people in total (1,500 seats), while Verchère could have filled up, or almost, in the event of a duel for the climb against Annecy and accommodate the double , or even triple the number of spectators.
