LIVESTREAM: France – Aix-en-Provence Argonautes @Marseille Blue Stars, Sunday, Feb. 2, 2p CET (8a ET)

The Marseille Blue Stars will open their season by hosting the Aix-en-Provence Argonauts, Sunday, February 2 as the French Federation of American Football Elite Division 2020 season kicks off.

The Blue Stars reached the Wild Card Playoff round in 2019 but were eliminated by the Saint-Ouen Cougars 37-29. Aix-en-Provence struggled through a 2-8 season

Following their stunning loss to the Cougars in the wild card playoffs in 2019, the Marseille club has aims to finish higher this season and has signed QB Kaleb Scott from Saint Mary’s University in Canada. Together with French U19 RB Florian Monduc and WR Brandon Camara, he will lead a young and very exciting offense. On the defensive side of the ball, 2019 MVP Eddy Abdhulah is back from GFL2 and is joined by another young French prospect DB Tyron Simon.

Following their dismal showing in 2019 when the only team they could beat was the lowly Bron-Villeurbanne Falcons (and only barely) Aix-en-Provence has signed QB Jason Gaines (Hastings College) who led the Warsaw Eagles to the PLFA title in Poland in 2019.  They have beefed up the offensive line with the addition of Paulo Andrade from Brazil and ex CFL OL Felix Gacusana (BC Lions, Simon Fraser University).

This one should be a comfortable win for Marseille but the new additions for the Argonautes could make a difference.
