The coronavirus pandemic has affected the football atmosphere. At the start of the season, Paris Saint-Germain was letting in a limited number of supporters. However, due to a second wave of the virus in France, the capital club has gone back to playing behind closed doors.
Despite some fans showing up to matches to begin the season, the atmosphere at the Parc des Princes isn’t its usual self as a result of the Collectif Ultras Paris (CUP) deciding not to attend matches.
It’s not that the CUP doesn’t want to be in the stands, but due to the health guidelines that people must follow at the stadium, the ultras decided it was best not to attend matches as it conflicts with how close they are together while chanting.
Nonetheless, it seems as though the capital club wants to make their presence known at the Parc des Prince as they’ll broadcast the sound of the supporters’ chants during their match against FC Girondins de Bordeaux, according to L’Equipe.
Furthermore, Nicolas Boffredo, the CUP’s newest president, spoke with Le Parisien about ways they’re continuing to support PSG despite not attending home or away matches.
