on an afternoon spent with volunteers and Puy Foot supporters

Le Puy/Nice in brief

The grandstand is full, but there is room around it

Since the start of the week, the 2,200 seats in the Massot grandstand have found takers, but it will still be possible to obtain seats around the perimeter (8 euros). Friday evening, around 1,000 available there are vendors at the various outlets. This Saturday, you can get some in the morning at La Mie Câline (place du Breuil), or directly at the counters of Massot, from 3 p.m.

Free shuttles set up

Already a headache for championship matches, parking around Massot promises to be complicated. The Town Hall has therefore planned to set up free shuttles to connect the car parks of Montredon and Cluny to Massot. They will play every quarter of an hour between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Same thing after the match until 9 p.m.

Clément Turpin at the whistle

After having refereed 3 World Cup matches (his second after 2018), Clément Turpin was designed to officiate on this Le Puy – Nice. He also has 256 Ligue 1 matches and 40 Champions League matches, including the last final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

The club of five

Five men rubbed shoulders with Le Puy (Site notre blog d’information) and OGC Nice. Player of the Aiglons between 2004 and 2008, Florent Balmont is, since this summer, assistant coach of the Ponots. Alexy Bosetti, trained in the South, spent a season in Haute-Loire (2020-2021). A particularity that also separates from Alain Wathelet (at Le Puy between 1987 and 1989), Fredéric Antonetti (1985-1987) and Philippe N’Dioro (1978-1980 and 1984-1985).
