Marseille fans again banned

PARIS (AFP) – The French Interior Ministry have banned Marseille fans from attending tomorrow’s (Monday, 2.45am Brunei time) Ligue 1 ‘Classique’ with bitter rivals Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at Parc des Princes.

The Ministry published the order announcing a 24-hour travel ban yesterday less than 36 hours before the encounter between table-topping PSG and Marseille, who are in second but 12 points adrift.

“From zero hour to midnight, the individual or collective movement, by any means, of any person claiming the status of supporter of the Olympique de Marseille or behaving as such, is prohibited between the municipalities of the department of Bouches-du-Rhone, on the one hand, and the municipalities of the region of Ile-de-France, on the other hand.”

This decision was made because of the “animosity” and the “strong antagonism” between the fans of the two clubs, said the order.
