In a twist to the 2023 Trophee des Champions saga, initially slated to take place in Thailand last August but ultimately postponed to January 3, the location remains a mystery.
Originally called off due to health concerns impacting someone belonging to the Thai royal family, the clash between PSG and Toulouse is now contemplating a scenario in which it'd be played on French soil.
The uncertainty surrounding the event seems to be here to stay. While Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and the Democratic Republic of Congo expressed interest in hosting the final, the French Football League is exploring the possibility of holding the match in France.
The specific city is yet to be determined, however, with the Stade de France and the very own city of Toulouse mentioned in the past but no concrete decisions made yet.
L'Equipe reported that the international context doesn't favor Qatar, and Saudi Arabia was never a strong contender to start with. Logistical challenges hinder the Democratic Republic of Congo.
With less than two months remaining, the Ligue 1 champions and Coupe de France winners are still awaiting confirmation on the venue for their showdown, but it's looking more than probable that the game will end up being played in the national territory.
