This is a rather unexpected news. And rather disturbing. The club Troyes announced this Sunday the closure of the Stade de l'Aube for an indefinite period. Following a check on October 31, "a fault assembly on the upper banner of the cover of the Seine stand" was found, explains a statement.
Last week, a consulting firm commissioned by Troyes Champagne Metropole found a similar problem on the Vitoux tribune, which was built the same year. As a result, the 20,000-seat compound was temporarily closed to "prevent any danger to the spectators".
Reopening "as soon as possible"
A blow to the players of Laurent Battles, seductive 3rd of League 2, at a point of the leader Lorient. While they were to receive Bourg-en-Bresse next Friday during the 7th round of the Coupe de France (20h), they will eventually move into the Ain since the meeting was reversed.
In the meantime, all the tribunes of the Trojan enclosure will be the subject of an in-depth inspection in the coming days. "Troyes Champagne Metropole is doing its utmost to allow the reopening of the Stade de l'Aube as soon as possible and thanks all Estac fans for understanding the importance of this difficult but necessary decision for the safety of all. .
