sang et or


Lens has a football team, currently close to the top of the second division, and if it plays well tonight it will be be assured of a promotion into Ligue 1. The stadium is about ten minutes walk from the centre of town and has a capacity of over 40000 (which is more than the population of Lens itself) and so it’s influence can be felt, not only because of the number of red and gold dressed fans that make their way to and from it when a match is on, but by the sound of the supporters during the game. Whist the team might not be the best in France (yet!) the Lensois are well known for the passionate support they give to their team, and their cheers, chants and songs can be heard when the game is on.
