Paris Saint-Germain, along with the Collectif Ultras Paris (CUP), came under fire after last Friday’s match against Waasland-Beveren where it was painfully obvious that some in attendance were not wearing a mask and not adhering to social distancing rules, which is absolutely necessary to lower the number of active coronavirus cases.
The president of the CUP, Romain Mabille spoke with Le Parisien over the situation; however, it looks like the capital club will also be discussing the matter with their Ultras, according to RMC Sport.
With the capital club playing on Tuesday against Celtic FC, the Ultras will be in attendance and in the spotlight. As a result, Les Parisiens have sat down with the group over the last couple of days to find ways to make sure that they’ll adhere to the rules. The articles suggest that the friendlies serve as a test as to whether or not supporters should be in attendance for official matches moving forward.
RMC Sport also stated that the French Football Federation wasn’t happy with the images from Friday’s friendly between PSG and Waasland-Beveren.
“The local actions of a few supporters must not jeopardize the process of the return of the public and penalize all professional competitions in the various disciplines and their audiences. The behavior of a few should not jeopardize everything, including understood to their own detriment, and to question the survival of an entire economic sector.”
The CUP will have until Tuesday to show that they’ll follow health protocols at stadiums.
