> > Trophée des Champions 2016 - Highlights of News Conference on March 26th, 2016

Today the contract for the French Supercup 2016 to be played on August 6th, 2016 in Klagenfurt was signed by IFCS manager Kian Walizadeh and Gael Caselli & Matthieu Ficot for the French Football Federation. Quite a few journalists were present at this news conference. The ticket sales will start next week. Next Monday we will provide further information on this. In the video segment attached below you can see the whole news conference with image and sound. Apart from that we have also added a photo gallery.

Some information on this event:
It is since 2009 that this event has always taken place outside of France. In the past years metropolises such as Montreal, Beijing and New York have been the venues for this prestigious match. This year it is the first time that this event will be hosted by a European city outside of France. The winner of this match can rejoice to have won the first title of the season 2016/17.

Participating teams:
The team of PSG (being the threefold winner of French Supercups) has already been determined as this year´s superior French champion. So PSG will definitely be one of the teams at this year´s “Trophée des Champions”. Whoever may be their opponents will be determined in the final of the “Coupe de France”. Next to PSG also the teams of FC Lorient, FC Sochaux and Olympique Marseille may have a chance to win this trophy. In case PSG were also the winners of the French cup title, the runners-up to the French football championship title would be the team to play against PSG in Klagenfurt on 6th August.
