The small French team will not compete in the World Cup reserved for players measuring less than 1m49 which begins this Monday, November 6 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The reason ? It takes 17,000 euros for the trip. And the team doesn't have them.
“We were not supported by the Ministry of Sports or by the government. I even contacted Brigitte Macron to ask for her support. She replied to me telling me that the Ministry of Sports would come back to me. He never came back to me,” noted Ayena Adjido, president of the Football PPT France association, speaking to BFM TV. A prize pool has just been opened. This Monday, November 6, only 411 euros were collected.
