The images of the Moustoir stadium field do not fail to react on social networks.
A few days before the reception of Olympique Lyonnais for the 2nd day of Ligue 1, the lawn of FC Lorient is more than degraded.
The drought, which affects all of France, but also the holding of concerts during the Interceltic Festival in the stadium, today threatens the smooth running of the next league match scheduled for Lorient this Sunday at 1 p.m.
I just saw the photo of the stadium on Facebook.
Quite honestly, acting on such terrain is borderline dangerous for actors.
There are places where there is no more lawn… And there are still 3 magical nights left (tonight, tomorrow and Thursday) #FCLOL pic.twitter.com/4Rpsa2M15u

"For the moment, there is no stadium that can accommodate us, and we are on the option of playing at Moustoir on the lawn as it is," said Merlus general manager Arnaud Tanguy. West France.
“We are doing everything with the city to have a passable lawn on Sunday.
The league will come on site on D-2, D-3 to see the state of the lawn and see if the ground is passable, which should be the case, ”he added.
No question of playing on dangerous ground for OL
The LFP will therefore come to see the state of the field before the meeting scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. between FC Lorient and OL.
Two delegates will be present this Thursday or Friday, according to L'Équipe.
Playing conditions which are also closely scrutinized by Olympique Lyonnais.
At Les Gones, there is no question of playing on a lawn which can "call into question the physical integrity of the players".
Case to follow therefore, but which is reminiscent of past episodes in Lorient.
In 2018, the club had to relocate two meetings due to the state of its lawn.
She then moved to Bordeaux, then Vannes.
