The National Rally joined the National Assembly football team

The French National Assembly football team will play its first match on September 28. Composed of parliamentarians from all sides, it now includes elected officials from the RN.

Opponents at the Bourbon Palace but teammates on the green square. The French National Assembly football team will begin its season on September 28, we learn in The Parisian. With a novelty: the integration of Rassemblement national deputies into the workforce. Among them, we find Philippe Ballard, Julien Odoul, Alexandre Sabatou or even Emmanuel Blairy.

They will touch the leather with parliamentarians of different political colors: Éric Coquerel, Antoine Léaument and Ugo Bernalicis for France insoumise (LFI); Mathieu Lefèvre and Marc Ferracci on the Renaissance side; Béatrice Bellamy of Horizons; Erwan Balanant for the MoDem…

Robert Pirès and Christian Karembeu will be on the pitch

Three captains have been appointed: Pierre-Henri Dumont, of the Les Républicains (LR) party, Karl Olive of Renaissance – former director of the sports department at Canal + – and the socialist Marietta Karamanli. The team will be mixed, five women parliamentarians have registered. All under the leadership of coach Luis Fernandez, a former French international who notably worked for PSG.

The meeting will be for the benefit of the “e-Enfance” association which fights against cyber-harassment. The match will take place at the Emile Anthoine stadium, not far from the Eiffel Tower. For parliamentarians, the task will be tough. Opposite, the selection of the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) will be made up of former football stars.

Among them, Robert Pirès, Christian Karembeu, Benoît Cheyrou or even Sidney Govou. “Meeting this type of player, and taking 25 goals, it makes you humble and it solidifies”, says Éric Coquerel in The Parisian.
