The 2009–10 Coupe de France was the 93rd season of the most prestigious French cup competition, organized by the French Football Federation, and was open to all clubs in French football, as well as clubs from the overseas departments and territories (Guadeloupe, French Guyana, Martinique, Mayotte, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, and Réunion). The final was contested on 1 May 2010 at the Stade de France. The defending champions were Guingamp, who had defeated Rennes 2–1 in the 2008–09 final. The winner of the competition will qualify for the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League and will be inserted into the Playoff round. Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain won the competition by defeating fellow first division club AS Monaco by a score of 1–0 in the final. The victory gives Paris Saint-Germain eight Coupe de France titles and their third this millennium.

Semifinals[edit]

The draw for the semi-finals of the Coupe de France was conducted on 28 March 2010 during a broadcast of France 2 show Stade 2. The draw was conducted by former Gabon national team manager and former French international Alain Giresse.[12] The matches were contested on the 13 and 14 April. The first match was televised on Eurosport and the second match was shown on France 2. The Quevilly – Paris Saint-Germain match was moved to the Stade Michel d'Ornano in Caen, which is located in Lower Normandy, not far from Rouen, which situates in Upper Normandy. The move, similar to the previous round, was made to accommodate the anticipated high attendance for the match and also because the French Football Federation felt the Stade Robert Diochon did not meet the standards needed to host a Coupe de France semi-final match.
