PARIS, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Ligue 1 outfit Amiens' next home match against Bordeaux on October 21 will be played at Stade Oceane in northern France's Le Havre, the Competition Commission of the French professional football league (LFP) announced on Thursday, a result of barrier collapse incidents at Amiens' home stadium last month.

"Meeting on October 12, the Competition Commission of the LFP decided that the match between Amiens and Bordeaux will be played at Stade Oceane in Le Havre on October 21, following serious incidents in the Amiens vs Lille match on September 30," said a LFP statement.
