Vive La France…Vive Lille

By Stuartnoel @theballisround

Our marketing wizard, Francois Hotte runs operations from Lille and was on first hand to see the victory parade from the team after their win in the Coupe de France last night.  Over to you Francois.

After 56 years, the LOSC brings back the French Cup to Lille, “Place de Paris”, how ironic when you know that Lille beat the PSG last night at the Stade de France thanks to a superb free kick from Ludovic Obraniak. They are now en route for an exploit, with three games to go to win the French Championship, Lille is ahead of Marseille with only 4 points. A great victory not only for the city but for the whole Nord Pas De Calais region in France.
