a footballing party at BOLLAERT
The party promised to be beautiful and it was! It was a clash of extremes between the leader of Ligue 1 and US Pays de Cassel, a club evolving in Régionale 1. Although the spectacle was present on the pitch, it was no less so in the stands. The Stade Bollaert-Delelis was sold out and the 38,000 people who had braved the freezing cold sang their hearts out until the final whistle. Beautiful images that remind us why this competition is so popular. For the occasion, the club gave a shirt signed by all the Parisian players to the directors of the northern club.
