Five days after the voluntary resignment of Romain Mabille, the former president of the Collectif Ultras Paris (CUP), the supporters have appointed a new president.
The CUP convened an assembly held in its office this past weekend and elected its new leader. Nicolas Boffredo is the new leader of the ultra group and its 3,000 members. Boffredo, whose nickname is “Bobo,” is a member that’s been with the group since its creation back in 2016.

Boffredo will have a lot on his plate to kick off his presidency as the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect how they can assemble. Furthermore, he needs to uphold the peace that there is among the different groups within the CUP.
The CUP had some parting words for their former president as he was part of the movement that helped bring ultra culture back to the Parc des Prince after it went away for a significant amount of time back in the early 2010s.
“Ultra culture has returned to the Parc des Princes, dialogue has been renewed with the club, and an agreement with it has been signed, more popular rates have were negotiated, and the Hechter jersey came back. “the door of our association and our turn will always be open to Romain in the role he wishes to occupy.”
