On June 27, the DNCG decided to relegate the Rouen club to National 2. After an appeal, it reversed its decision and is demanding a framework for the payroll.

A relief for FC Rouen. The National Management Control Directorate (DNCG) has finally decided to keep the club from the capital of Seine-Maritime in National 1 this Tuesday, July 9, it said in a press release.

Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol, mayor of the town, also added his comment to this decision. “Happy for the club, the supporters, the players, the staff of FC Rouen. Thank you to all those who contributed to this maintenance,” wrote the mayor.

On June 27, the DNCG decided to relegate the club to National 2 due to failure to meet financial requirements. A decision taken after the club’s first season in National, during which it finished in 7th place. The club then appealed.

Its new president, Iwan Postel, successor to Charles Marek, had spoken of an unjustified decision. “I am in a state of shock because we were convinced that we were going to pass, we had done everything to do so,” he lamented on BFM Normandie on June 28.

“This decision will inevitably lead to the club’s bankruptcy,” added its president in a letter addressed to the DCNG and relayed by AFP.

Iwan Postel was appointed president of FC Rouen at the beginning of June, after Tarkan Ser’s takeover of the cluba Turkish businessman. The future from the quarter-finalist of the last French Cup is now in the 3rd tier of French football.
