2008â€“09 Coupe de France
The competition for the Coupe de France in the 2008 /09 season was the 92nd playout of the French Football Cup for men teams. This season, 7,246 clubs in France and its overseas departments and territories took it - over eight per cent more than in the previous season; so that a notification record was set again.
Titleholder was Lyon, who retired this time in the second round. For the first time in the competition's history a purely Breton final took place, the second division side En Avant Guingamp was able to win in his second finals after 1997. The team from the 8,000 - person town Guingamp ever was only the second unterklassige since the introduction of professionalism (1932 ), which could take the trophy home. Playoff opponents Stade Rennes defeated in his fifth final for the third time, after it had lasted 38 years, ever again as far push forward.
After completion organized by the regional subdivisions of the National Federation FFF qualifying rounds intervened in Zweiunddreißigstelfinale the first division in the Contest. From this round of competition was held after the classic Cup mode; ie, in particular, that the respective Fixtures without seedings or a power-rated or regional sorting of clubs from all still in the competition clubs were drawn and only one match is played at the end of a winner it must be established ( and whether by extra time and penalties ), which then qualifies for the next round, while the loser is eliminated. Also, the venue was determined for each encounter by lot, since 2003/ 04 but with the restriction that clubs that compared at least two performance levels - not to be confused with league levels - have to compete higher playing eleven, automatically got home advantage.
This competition saw another first in the history of the Coupe de France: With his victory in the round of 64 teams in the nordelsässische FCE Schirrhein ( Championnat d'Excellence ) reached the first -tier screening at all the round of. In addition, a team from the French overseas possessions qualified with the Société Sportive Jeanne d' Arc from Le Port on Reunion once again for the Zweiunddreißigstelfinale, the first round they attend the Ligue 1 representative. These two " petits pouches " ( as " Tom Thumb ", such " David," which assert themselves against " Goliaths ", often referred to in France) complement of surprises not just poor history of the Cup, as well as two other amateur teams that advanced relatively far: AF Rodez from the semi-professional third division to the quarter and the fourth-rate AS Vitre to the last sixteen.

Both finalists had asked the Association that, " Zadou Bro gozh ma" to play at the official ceremony in addition to the French and the Breton national anthem; this was rejected by the FFF. However, could the singer Alan Stivell and two Bagadou - from Guingamp or Chantepie, a suburb of Rennes - intone this song, while the players entered the pitch at the Stade de France for the purpose of warming up. In addition, the sports newspaper L' Équipe appeared on the day of the match between city and Roazhon War raok Gwengamp with a title page in Breton and called in a corresponding translation of her name " Ar Skipailh ".
. Viewership in the final meant an improvement of the previous high-water mark of the competition on May 2007 This saw the first goals that suffered Rennes in this year's Coupe de France after Stade on his way to the final in five games - four of them against other first division - had concede a single goal. And they were witnesses to the first second win of the Coupe de France by a team unterklassige: this was the first time in 1959 Le Havre AC succeeded.
For two players from EA Guingamp this was not the first success in a cup final: Yves Deroff (1999 with FC Nantes) and Lionel Mathis (2003 and 2005, each with AJ Auxerre) had already counted before the victorious team. And coach Zvunka had the 1976 Coupe ever won - but still playing for Olympique Marseille. As a coach, however, this was his first Cup title in his second final, after 2004 also led a second division team to the finals, however, had to be fought in the LB Châteauroux.
