SPORT – The Disciplinary Commission of the French Football Federation (FFF) decided on Monday December 27 to give away a lost match for Paris FC and Lyon after the incidents that occurred in the stands during the 32nd final of the Coupe de France on December 19.

After this strong decision by the FFF, Nice, which was to meet the winner of this match in the round of 16, is therefore directly qualified in the 8th.

OL are thus suspended from the Coupe de France with a suspended sentence, as of the 2022/2023 edition. The Lyon club will also be deprived of its supporters in outside yard until the end of the season. A sanction that will also apply in Ligue 1. Paris FC will have to play five matches behind closed doors at Charléty.

The two teams are also fined, 10,000 euros for Paris FC, 52,000 euros for Lyon.

The match between Paris FC and Lyon, played at the Charléty stadium, was finally abandoned at half-time (1-1), the latest episode in a long series of incidents in the stands in French stadiums this season.

Smoke bombs were launched around the Lyon supporters’ parking lot and brawls broke out in the stands, leading to crowd movements and the deployment of law enforcement. Two people, a supporter and a policeman, were injured.

While no arrest took place at the time, three ultra Parisian supporters were subsequently arrested. Two of them will be tried for violence in meetings, we learned last Wednesday from the prosecution, which opened an investigation the day after the events.
