To respect the limit of 5,000 spectators maximum, the Vélodrome will see its north and south corners closed against Lille on Sunday.
All or nothing. Since the pandemic, OM supporters have respected this guideline. Either all subscribers of turns can access the stadium, or none of them will go there. According to RMC , the match against Lille on Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.) will be no exception to the rule.
The supporters’ associations have indeed decided not to make a choice in their members, preferring to close the north and south bends. The 5,000 people who will fill the stands of the Vélodrome will therefore be content with the Jean-Bouin and Ganay stands.
A majority of them will be in the boxes and lounges, a desire of OM to take care of its relationship with its partners. The rest, around 1,500 people, will be made up of supporters who have purchased a single ticket for the match.
The objective will be to avoid the disaster observed at Bollaert, in the Coupe de France. The 5,000 supporters were crowded together, therefore not respecting barrier gestures. The government has also indicated that sanctions could be taken if the situation were to recur. A seat will then have to separate the members of different groups.
