The Brest-Strasbourg match, which was to be held on Sunday in Ligue 1 but was postponed due to damage caused by storm Ciaran, has been rescheduled for December 7 at 8:30 p.m., the Professional Football League (LFP) said on Thursday. The LFP announced this postponement on Monday, without specifying the date. “The Competitions Commission has decided to reschedule the Stade Brestois 29 – RC Strasbourg Alsace match on Thursday December 7, 2023 at 8:30 p.m.,” indicates the League in a press release.
On December 3, the Breton club had already indicated that this match could not take place in its stadium, without specifying whether it could take place in another venue or if it would be postponed. “The roof of the Charles de Foucauld stand was hit in several places. Other damage was also noted within the stadium,” Stade Brestois said. Ciaran, which passed through Normandy and Brittany on the night of November 1 to 2, left at least three dead and 47 injured. Some 44,200 homes were still without electricity on Tuesday in these two regions.
