Saturday March 29: during the League Cup Final Lens-Paris, some supporters of the Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG) deployed a very large banner "Pédophiles, chômeurs, consanguins: bienvenue chez les Ch'tis" ("Paedophiles, unemployed, consanguineous: welcome at Ch'tis" - the banner made a reference to a very famous film in France "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis", which is about the people living in the North of France, and who are called Ch'tis"). This xenophobic banner caused a very sharp emotion in France and many reactions. It gave - again - on the front of the scene the problem of racism in football. On April 17, 2008 the Minister of Interior dissolved the PSG supporter club "Les Boulogne Boys", under the terms of the law 2006-784, and on April 30, 2008 the LFP condemned the PSG by excluding it from the League Cup in 2008-2009.
