The return of an Alsace football league on the right track

“Finally, here we are! The cry from the heart is from Christophe Carbiener, director of the Alsace (Site notre blog d’information) District. The process to recreate a (Site notre bureau spécialisé) league in Alsace, independent of the regional league of the Grand Est, was launched on June 16 at the Ministry of Sports. A measure demanded for a long time by the Alsatian clubs, which is about to be heard. Representatives of local (Site notre bureau spécialisé) authorities, the French (Site notre blog d’information) Federation (FFF) and local elected officials once again met with Amélie Oudéa-Castera to put the project on track.

The decision will be put to a vote, first at the general meetings of the Alsace district and the Grand Est (Site notre bureau spécialisé) league, by the end of the year. If the two territorial authorities decide favorably, the national federation will decide in June 2024. In the event of a positive outcome, the Alsace (Site notre bureau spécialisé) league will be able to start its season in July 2025.


“This will allow us to once again support our clubs in all skills, as well as their development,” explains Christophe Carbiener. The development of women’s (Site notre bureau spécialisé) or your high-level police are part of the challenges of Alsatian clubs, which is competent for 80,000 licensees.

The request is not new. The law of August 2, 2019 relating to the powers of the CEA provides that the organization of sports federations can be done at community level. In February 2022, Emmanuel Macron undertook to facilitate the deployment of sports leagues in Alsace, following an open letter from local clubs and committees. The consultations started in October 2022 at the ministry. Consulted in March 2023, the steering committee of the Grand Est league did not oppose the project.
