An important decision falls for the reception of PSG!

For the match between AXIS and PSG, supporters of the two clubs are affected by the decisions of the LFP and the Prefecture of the Loire.

ASSE: Paris SG supporters banned from Geoffroy-Guichard

ASSE will not be able to count on its supporters of the North and South Kops, when Paris Saint-Germain comes on Sunday, November 28. And for good reason, the Disciplinary Commission of the Professional Football League (LFP) declared the two stands (Jean Snella and Charles Paret) closed against Paris SG. But also during the reception at Stade Rennais, on December 5. This sanction follows the incidents (smoke jets) caused by some supporters of AS Saint-Étienne during the reception of Angers SCO (2-2), on October 22 (11th day of Ligue 1).

Until Thursday, supporters of the capital club were not banned from travel by the Professional Football League, but a decree from the Loire prefecture put an end to this provision. According to information from France Blue Saint-Étienne Loire, the PSG public is no longer authorized to access the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium and its surroundings, during the 15th day of the championship. They are also prohibited from parking and driving on public roads in Saint-Étienne on match day.

The prefecture of the Loire fears “serious disturbances to public order”

To justify her decision, Prefect Catherine Seguin mentions prevention of “Risks of serious disturbances to public order”. The source specifies that “Failure to comply with the provisions of the prefectural decree constitutes an offense punishable by 6 months’ imprisonment and € 30,000 in fines”. Violators of this prefectural decision “also expose themselves to administrative stadium bans”, according to the authorities of the Loire prefecture.
