The pension reform, which everyone remembers Above all the postponement of age legal at 64, divides the country and above all wakes up a hard-working France which feels unfairly penalized (especially when it looks at its life expectancy in good health: 65.9 years for women and 64.4 years for men.). Social conquests are deeply rooted in our collective history. As a reminder, our current system was established during the application of the program of the National Council of the Resistance to Liberation in 1945 (the symbolic ceiling of 60 years for the retirement age at the full rate goes back, for its part, to an ordinance of March 26, 1982 decided by the government of Pierre Mauroy, under the first presidency of François Mitterrand).
Football is not totally absent from this beautiful protest liturgy. If he often forgets it, especially coast of the FFF, the rise and democratization of the round ball have been largely facilitated by the extension of workers’ rights, for example there reduction of the weekly duration. Léon Jouhaux, then secretary of the CGT, explained it this way in 1919 in the review Floreal : “ To the worker exhausted by his daily task who returned tired of his work in an unpleasant home, it was difficult to ask to perfect his education (…). As for asking him to play sports, that would have been a bitter derision, wouldn’t it? » THE Popular Front, in 1936, will contribute to amplify the phenomenon and this invisible dependence, with a week of two Sundays which allowsyou to hit the leather twice week ends.
An obvious solidarity
The introduction of retirement also played its part. If only because today, many associations cannot operate without their retired volunteers.

It is therefore almost in the best interests of football, if you want your kid or girl to continue to be welcomed in good conditions in the local FC (of which we know that thousands have disappeared for a few years, between confinement and the economic crisis). These are certainly concerns far removed from the routine of the federal comex and its current president Philippe Diallo, former leader, for the record, of the Employers’ Union of Professional Football Clubs.
Parade alongside the CGT or the CFDT would in fact constitute a fair recognition of the belly. An obvious solidarity, especially from a professional world where everyone is far from being millionaires by the way. Support for those who have allowed their emergence on the more or less bare grounds of this vast associative sports movement of which our Republic can legitimately be proud. Finally, there is one last good motivation, which should raise awareness, for example, of ultras and other supporterss. In view of the evolution of match schedules, both in Ligue 1 and in Ligue 2, not to mention the National, with the pressure of the resale of television rights internationally (one of the fantasies economic of the LFP), he will prevail more and more of‘to be retired in order to hope to be able to watch them live to the home or even get to the stadium.
