Football Team Eliminated From Cup After GPS Gaffe Sends Them To The Wrong Town

A football team in France were knocked out of a cup competition because of a hilarious GPS mix-up.

Tarbes, who were formed in 2006 and play in the sixth tier, were drawn against Vabres-L’Abbaye in the early stages of the Coupe de France.

The fourth round fixture was at Vabres-L’Abbaye's home patch in southern France but a typo from the coach driver meant the visitors turned up FIFTY minutes late.



As per 20 Minutes, they had actually made it on time but had ended up in Vabre - which was completely the wrong town and was 90 kilometres away.

Tarbes eventually turned up at what should have been half-time and were spotted running to the stadium but their lateness resulted in a disqualification.

A couple of years back, some Benfica fans endured one of the best football mishaps we've ever seen when they went to the wrong Frankfurt in Germany for a Europa League quarter final clash.


learly not planning their trip properly or doing their research to the fullest, they travelled from to Frankfurt (Oder) as opposed to the Frankfurt they were playing.

The cities are 600 km apart and it's a six hour journey.

The whole 37 hour trip was documented on one of the fan's Instagram pages and it's just one big facepalm, really.


It starts off really excited for the away day ahead and slowly but surely they realise what an utter nightmare they've had.

And more recently, Aston Villa skipper Tyrone Mings had a coach blunder when he was left stranded following a 2-1 defeat away at Spurs over the weekend.

The team bus went off without him and left the England international on his own with his suitcase.
