If he hoped to keep his Champions Trophy from August, Paris Saint-Germain can already review his plans. The 2023 edition is about to be postponed.
On July 31, Paris Saint-Germain offered the scalp of FC Nantes on the side of Tel Aviv (4-0), on the occasion of the Champions Trophy. Thanks to a goal from Lionel Messi, two from Neymar and a final one from Sergio Ramos, the capital club validated its eleventh success in a duel between the French champion and the winner of the Coupe de France. This year, the meeting was scheduled in Thailand, at the Rajamangala stadium in Bangkok, but it could be postponed.
According to information relayed on Friday by The Team, the probability of the cancellation of the match in Bangkok is serious and”certainly imminent. The media explains that the Thai organizer (Fresh Air Festival) “ wish to disengage“, without the exact causes of this desire being explained. In fact, the Professional Football League will have to revise its plans and postpone the meeting to a later date. The period of the winter break is mentioned. The meeting should once again take place in a country other than France.
The sports site also confirms that the Thai cancellation, if it were to be officially confirmed, would cause a record loss of four million to the League. The two parties will however have to meet to negotiate a forfeiture of compensation for this famous prejudice. The news is in any case a first episode and a small upheaval in the calendar of next season for a Paris Saint-Germain who has every chance of being present during this match of the Champions Trophy.
With six points ahead of Lens (2nd), three days before the end of the Ligue 1 championship, Paris should be crowned an eleventh time and thus validate its ticket for a Champions Trophy for which Toulouse has already obtained its ticket thanks to his success in the final of the Coupe de France (4-1, against Nantes).
