As discussed in the 2017-18 thread, qualification for the 2018-19 Coupe de France is already well underway. Three regions of mainland France have started (or will very soon start) their qualification rounds.
In Paris-Île-de-France the first two rounds are pretty much completed, although there will no doubt be an extra tour de cadrage round in August to fudge the numbers required for the third round.
A nett 378 teams were scheduled to participate in the first round, and the winners were joined by 83 new entrants up to and including the top regional league (formerly Division d'Honneur, now pretty universally Régionale 1).
In Grant Est region, a nett 730 teams are scheduled to participate in the first round. Lorraine sector is pretty much complete, but there are still plenty of games this week and next in Alsace and Champagne-Ardenne sectors. The figures for each sector: Alsace 330, Champagne-Ardenne 84, Lorraine 316.
In Hauts-de-France region, there are 100 teams kicking off round one in the fairly accessible Somme district, with most of the fixtures this Sunday if anyone fancies a quick trip over. The other districts in this region will hold round one games in August, with registrations now closed.
Overseas, the qualifying campaigns are well underway in Réunion (38 entries, 12 in round two, 26 exempt to round three, round one omitted for sequencing) and Mayotte (30 in round one, 17 exempt to round two).
Closing date for registration in the remaining mainland regions is tomorrow, 15th June.
All the results available at https://en.wikipedia.org/...e_Preliminary_Rounds and for those who like to keep track of entrant numbers, there's a temporary table at https://en.wikipedia.org/...r:Gricehead/sandbox2 which will eventually go in the main competition article.
