Football, Coupe de France 2018—A Proud History
In French Football, the Coupe de France in 2018 (also known as the “Coupe Charles Simon”), is named after a French sportsman who died while serving in World War I. The competition had its first season in 1917-1918 and is open to all amateur and professional soccer clubs in France, as well as clubs from France’s overseas departments and territories.
The competition structure gives some advantages to amateur teams, although only two of these have successfully reached the finals (Calais RUFC in 2000 and Les Herbiers VF in 2018).
