It’s time for the D1 Arkema mid-season review !


It is the mid-season in D1 Arkema ! The perfect moment to do a review on the first part of the season, on the sport plan as well as on Arkema’s activation around it. 


At the time of taking a little rest in this month of December, let's take a look at the ranking.  

The Paris Saint-Germain is the Autumn champions with 29 points, thanks, to their victory over the Olympique Lyonnais on the last day of this first leg. The Parisians thus chain an 11th match without defeat for as many games. Lyon follow in second place, 1 point behind PSG.


Behind, the fight for 3rd place is exciting since 4 teams stand in 4 points. Paris FC completes the podium with 21 points, ahead of Montpellier, 4th with 19 points, FC Fleury with 18 points and finally the Stade de Reims with 17 points.

The bottom of the table is also very undecided, since after 11 games, the 9th in the ranking, Dijon, is only 3 points ahead of the bottome of the class, Rodez and its 5 points. ASJ Soyaux and Rodez therefore fill, at the mid-season, the 2 relegation places.

Several players have distinguished themselves by their performances during these 3 and a half months of competition. Among them, Maëlle Garbino who won the 1st D1 Arkema Player of the Month trophy in September and who repeated the accomplishment by winning it again in November. In October, it was the Parisian Kadidiatou Diani who won it. Diani who the top scorer of the league with 9 goals, 2 units ahead of Mathilde Bourdieu, Kessya Bussy and Maëlle Garbino. 

On the side of assists, we find Rachel Corboz of the Stade de Reims in 1st place with 5 assists. She is followed by 5 players with 4 assists, Sandy Baltimore, Océane Deslandes, Julie Dufour, Léa Le Garrec and Gaëtane Thiney. 


The second part of the season will start in January. 11 match weeks will remain to decide who of the 12 teams will win the D1 Arkema. One thing is sure, the players will continue to deliver on the pitch, and it could be the perfect occasion for you to go see them !



This first half of the season was also marked by the activations set up by Arkema.

Indeed, as every season, Arkema decided to activate several targeted games. It was during the Le Havre – Paris Saint-Germain match on October 2nd that we were able to see the "Arkema Match" protocol.


During this match, more than 200 employees and children of Arkema employees from nearby sites as well as young players from the Thiberville club (partner club of the Serquigny production site) were invited. Some also had the opportunity to watch the players warm up from the edge of the pitch, before participating in the ceremony at the beginning of the match.

Indeed, 44 children, aged 7 to 17 years were able to unfurl the tarpaulin of the central circle and the protocol flags of the match for the players' entrance ceremony, but also escort the players on the pitch.

Visitors and Arkema employees present at the stadiums were also able to (re)discover the Arène Arkema, a fun football activity and a travelling reproduction of L'atelier 4.20, presenting Arkema innovations and materials.


This event marked the launch of Pink October, breast cancer awareness month for which Arkema is committed by donating €150 per goal for each of the 3 championship’s game day in October. 

The color pink was therefore in order during this game. A pink carpet was deployed for the entrance of the players on the lawn, pink outfits were given to the children participating in the animations, pink ribbons and leaflet on the subject were distributed, a pink Arkema LED and a giant screen visual were broadcast, etc.


It was at the headquarters of the French Football Federation, the November 8th that Arkema presented a check of € 10,000 to the Ruban Rose association to help the research.


While waiting for the resumption of the season, we wish you a very happy holiday season and look forward to seeing you on January 14, 2023 on the edge of the D1 Arkema fields for the 12th match week of the championship !
