#MomentOfCool: What Pro/Rel Means In France…

Without Jarrett sounding the pro/rel gong behind the HQ as we file this story…

Some context…

Amiens SC had never been playing in Ligue 1- the top league of French football- in their entire history of ever… 116 years worth of not playing at the top…

That was until this happened on, literally, the last kick of their season…

And, yes, the play-by-play is in French, but you’ll get the idea…

Here’s the background…

Six teams had a shot at promotion on the last day out of Ligue 2. Strasbourg won, so they were in. That left five teams for one spot. With the 96th minute winner, Amiens goes forward automatically and avoids a play-in match for the third Ligue 1 spot.

First, Time, Ever…

That’s cool…
