Report: PSG Considering Playing Upcoming Home Fixtures Behind Closed Doors

Paris Saint-Germain is giving serious consideration into playing its upcoming home fixtures behind closed doors, according to a report from L’Equipe.

Olivier Veran, the Minister of Solidarity and Health, announced new restrictions on Wednesday that will drop the large event spectator limit from 5,000 to 1,000 in select French cities. Paris was among those cities picked and now will have to adhere to the new mandated restrictions. This is all due to the gradual rise in coronavirus cases in select regions of France. It is unclear of just how long these new guidelines will run for.

Instead of allowing just 1,000 spectators into the Parc des Princes, PSG is considering having its upcoming home fixtures without fans. Two of its next five Ligue 1 fixtures will be at home, including its contest against Angers in early October. Depending on just how long the restrictions will be in place for, PSG could possibly play some of its early home UEFA Champions League group stage fixtures without fans as well.
