Following the violent incidents that occurred during the match between Nice and OM last weekend between supporters and players, travel bans for ultras will multiply …
The Covid crisis has not changed anything for the supporters. While the return of spectators to the stadiums of L1 was eagerly awaited, after too long a period of games behind closed doors, French football quickly became disillusioned. Since last Sunday, Nice supporters attacked OM players on the Allianz Riviera lawn. Violent images that have toured Europe… Not really good publicity for the French championship. It is therefore to avoid the multiplication of this kind of overflow that the Ministry of the Interior has decided to tighten the screw. With immediate choices, given that the clash between Marseille and Saint-Etienne, scheduled for Saturday night at the Stade Vélodrome, will be without the supporters of the Greens.
The supporters of ASSE and OM are too violent
Indeed, a decree will prohibit, from midnight Saturday, “any movement, even individual, of Stéphanois supporters between the municipalities of Loire, Isère, Drôme, Rhône, Ardèche, Haute- Loire, Puy-de-Dôme, Allier, Saône-et-Loire on the one hand, and in the town of Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône), on the other hand ”. To justify this new deprivation of liberty, the prefect did not hesitate to point the finger at the ultras of both camps.
