“Due to the damage caused by storm Ciaran” which passed through Finistère on the night of November 1st to 2nd, “the Stade Brestois 29 – RC Strasbourg Alsace meeting, counting for the 12th day of Ligue 1 Uber Eats and initially scheduled for Sunday November 12 at 1:00 p.m., is postponed,” writes the LFP in a press release, without specifying the new date.
On Friday, 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 in the region or if this would force the LFP to postpone. “The roof of the Charles de Foucauld stand was hit in several places. Other damage was also noted within the stadium,” reported Stade Brestois, which also indicated the postponement to a later date of the Ligue 2 meeting between US Concarneau and Pau FC, scheduled for Saturday at the Francis stadium. -Wheat.
