While Paris Saint-Germain fans have been allowed to make the trip to Dortmund this Wednesday in the Champions League – there will be 3,800 of them in the Signal Iduna Park car park – they will not be able to travel to Lille this Sunday, on the 16th day of Ligue 1. A ministerial order has been issued prohibiting Parisian fans from making this short trip.

On Sunday, December 17, 2023, from midnight to midnight, individual or collective travel by any means whatsoever by any person claiming to be a Paris-Saint-Germain fan will be prohibited. The antagonism stems from a violent brawl between fans of the two clubs on April 29, 2012 in Lille, he added. The Paris-Saint-Germain club’s travels are frequently a source of public order disturbances due to the violent behavior of certain supporters or individuals claiming to be supporters of this team, manifested on a recurring basis in the vicinity of stadiums and in the town centers of match venues, by brawls between supporters as well as violence against the forces of law and order or the throwing of firecrackers, smoke bombs, causing injury.

Around 1,100 PSG supporters, including 600 ultras, were expected in the north of France on Sunday. Fans of Stade Rennais, OGC Nice, Stade de Reims and Stade Brestois have also been banned from attending.
