Despite the tensions between the two clubs before the Coupe de France meeting, Olympique de Marseille donated the entire proceeds of the match to Hyères FC (N2), according to information RMC Sports. The Var amateur club was therefore able to recover the sum of 38,000 euros, despite their elimination (2-0).
A payment which did not completely convince the president of Hyères, Mourad Boudjellal. The latter believes that a confrontation at the Mayol stadium (capacity of 17,500 seats + 45 boxes), could have brought in his club “up to 500,000 euros in revenue.” A tradition in the Coupe de France, but which is not respected by all professional clubs. FC Nantes would not have had this gesture of attention towards AF Virois (N3). Not very sporty the direction of the “Canaries”.
