The BCM Team Forfeits the Match Against Roanne Following the Flu and Covid-19 Epidemics

A Meeting Postponed for the Gravelinois

Faced with a wave of infectious diseases which hit its team, BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque had to resolve to postpone its match scheduled for this Saturday against the Roanne team. The competition which was part of the 17th day of the Elite basketball championship will not be able to take place on the scheduled date, as confirmed by the National Basketball League (LNB).

Event Details

Preparations for the move from Gravelines to Roanne were abruptly interrupted following the discovery of several cases of flu as well as Covid-19 among the players. According to the words of Christian Devos, president of the BCM, the first symptoms and positive tests appeared on Thursday, when the team was about to board the bus to Lille and then join Roanne by train. The situation quickly deteriorated, pushing the club to alert the LNB who took the decision to postpone the match.

Hope for a Quick Recovery

The leaders and players of the BCM hope that the postponement will only be short-lived and that the players will be able to return to the courts very quickly to continue a championship where they are struggling for the moment, occupying the penultimate position. Before this upset, the team was aiming to finish the year strong with a home match against Paris on December 28.

A Disturbed Calendar

  • BCM vs Roanne match: initially scheduled for Saturday December 23, postponed to a new date.
  • Affected players: Several members of the BCM team confirmed with the flu or Covid-19.
  • Next TBD Match: The hope of playing again quickly, especially the home match against Paris on December 28.

The current episode is a reminder of the challenges that sports clubs must face in the context of a still-present pandemic, even as sporting life tries to return to normal. The health of the players remains a priority, and the LNB’s decision shows the concern for prudence in the management of events.
