20/21 Season

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if the Elite 1 and 2 seasons are starting in September? I have looked online but as my French is limited to a GCSE grade B in the early 90s I haven’t had any luck finding anything out. Thanks.

I hope the 20/21 French season isn`t going to be like this year`s English women`s SL, where all the players kept training so that they`d be good to go should they finally hear something definite and positive. Then after repeated deferrals, the season was officially cancelled.

On many French RL social media pages there are items about signings, recruitments, resumptions of training, etc. Yet, given that the government are making even spectators at the Tour de France wear masks, it`s clear that if the season were set to start this weekend it would have to be put back. They surely don`t have the resources to create "bubbles" like the NRL and SL.

What`s going to change in a month or two? If anything, all the talk about avoiding a second wave in the winter will likely get more urgent.

Presume they have to plan now for next season but they can't control events outside their hands ? If they hadn't released fixtures then they'd be hung out to dry for ineptness.

I hope it goes ahead as planning to go to magic weekend but not booked yet.

What can they do, they can’t not arrange any fixtures but like all sports if there’s another lockdown they’ll have to stop playing. Anyway crowds in Elite 1 are (as I understand it) usually well below 1,000 so they’d probably be ok as things are now.
