Ligue 1 – AS Saint-Etienne supporters banned from traveling to Marseille on Saturday


Supporters of AS Saint-Etienne (L1) are banned from traveling to Marseille on Saturday, on the occasion of the meeting between their team and OM, AFP learned Thursday from concordant sources. A decree of the Ministry of the Interior, published Thursday in the Official Journal, specifies that « from midnight to midnight, individual or collective travel, by any means, of any person claiming to be a supporter of the Saint-Etienne Sports Association or behaving as such, is prohibited« between the municipalities of nine departments and the city of Marseille.

These departments are « Loire, Isère, Drôme, Rhône, Ardèche, Haute-Loire, Puy-de-Dôme, Allier, and Saône-et-Loire« . The ministry believes that »a real and serious risk of clash between the supporters of the two clubs exists on the occasion of the meeting between the two teams on Saturday August 28, 2021 at 9 p.m. at the Orange Vélodrome stadium in Marseille« .

« Relations between the supporters of ASSE and OM are imbued with animosity (…) this strong antagonism has resulted in serious clashes requiring the intervention of the police, some of whom have been wounded, by projectile jets and by the ignition of pyrotechnic devices« , indicates the decree, recalling a series of incidents that have occurred since 2018. »We are used to it. We have been banned from traveling to Marseille for several seasons.« , lamented the president of the Union des supporters Stéphanois, Jean-Guy Riou.
