On Saturday, the match between PSG Women & Reims Women was suspended due to fireworks being set off in a neighbouring building. A video, which has gone viral on social media, shows players, officials and coaches fleeing the pitch and technical area as fireworks lit up across the field.
The D1 Arkema match which was being played at the Léo-Lagrange stadium in Poissy was suspended in the second half with the scores level at 0-0. Two firecrackers were launched in the first half but the referee did not intervene with proceedings until several were launched during the second half.
It was confirmed after 40 minutes of both teams waiting that the match would not resume on Saturday evening. The fireworks, fired from the surrounding buildings, fell right in the middle of a stand filled with families, including children, and also reached a mounted structure on which the commentators and cameramen of the match were located. No one is thought to have been injured. The fate of the match will be decided at the next commission of the FFF.
