Nice: A petanque tournament to improve group life

So that the group lives well, the management of OGC Nice has decided to create a petanque tournament in honor of Andy Delort, a big fan of this discipline.

Acquired by the INEOS Group in 2019, theOGC Nice shifted into another dimension. With a new and ultra-modern training centre, greater financial resources and regular and rising sporting results, the Aiglons are among the contenders for Europe in Ligue 1, they will also be competing in the Europa League Conference this season. next.

And if for the moment the pre-season of the men of Lucien Favre does not really dream (1 draw and 2 losses in three matches), Dave Brailsford, who wishes to make the Gym the most modern club in France, also wants to favor the human side of the club and ensuring that group life is the best possible.

The Andy-Delort Trophy

It is for this reason that he decided to create… a petanque tournament! In an interview given to The Teamhe explains that he had this idea when he saw a photo ofAndy Delort with petanque balls, hence the name of the trophy, the Andy-Delort Trophy. “In any organization, the most important thing is the people. (…) One day, I saw a photo of Andy Delort playing boules, and I wanted a competition. Next to our restaurant at the club there is a pétanque court. Since I really like it, I said, “Why not have a petanque tournament? “Having small internal competitions is fun, it allows you to get to know each other. A human being only works well when there is a culture of challenge.he explained.

A transfer window that struggles to come alive

Asked about the transfer window of the Riviera club, very discreet with only two recruits to his credit (Ilie et Bun), Brailsford advocated patience and working behind the scenes to address the concerns of his supporters. “At Ineos, we like to work with discretion. Nice are working on developing a style of play with a coach (Favre) who has a clear style. We decided that it was smarter to wait for his opinion to guide us and target the right player profiles.he added.

Saturday, the Niçois will face theAS Rome of José Mourinho then the Torino on July 30, their season will begin on August 7 with a trip to the lawn of the promoted Toulouse.
