In the prestigious setting of the "Camille Blanc" room at the Grimaldi Forum, AS Monaco invited their most ardent supporters and season ticket holders to a special question and answer session about the club.
The players arrived to rapturous applause and were immediately mobbed by the three hundred fans in attendance.
Club Vice-President Vadim Vasilyev, Leonardo Jardim and Jérémy Toulalan then took to the stage to applause from the season ticket holders, an entrance that heralded a great evening. After a short presentation by Christophe Josse, a journalist at BeIn Sports and moderator for the event, a lively debate quickly got under way.
It proved to be a wonderful evening marked by a cheerful atmosphere, some detailed answers and the deep affection of everyone present for AS Monaco.
Vadim Vasilyev: "I wanted to organise this event because it's important for the AS Monaco family to come together and talk. The supporters, the season ticket holders are essential for us. Their support is absolutely vital. But it's important for us to be able to meet and discuss things outside of matches. I'm delighted to see so many of them here this evening, and I hope they have enjoyed it. We've tried to answer their questions and enable them to get a better understanding of our project. The players and the coach made themselves available naturally, and this is an event we'll be repeating. I'd like to thank all the supporters for their kindness and their support."
While refreshments were served afterwards, the fans had some photo opportunities and a chance to get some autographs from their favourite players. A great way to end an evening of bonding and togetherness. See you again next year!
