City of Marseille bans PSG shirts ahead of Champions League final

PSG will embark on what could be one of the greatest nights in the club’s history on Sunday, however the city of Marseille is having none of it.

In an effort to clamp down on public disturbances, the Bouches-du-Rhone police prefecture confirmed on Thursday that it intended to ban “the presence of PSG supporters or people presenting themselves as such and behaving as such” around the historic Old Port, where bars regularly show games.

The decision comes after incidents during the semi final clash between the French champions and Leipzig, in which hundreds of Marseille fans reportedly gathered around the area and targeted people they believed to be PSG fans.

A number of bars were forced to stop broadcasting the game as a result of the clashes.


The historic rivalry between both clubs has previously led to travel bans being placed on PSG fans from travelling to away games at the Stade Velodrome.

Mbappe and co will be hoping to make history on Sunday by winning the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history, though go into the game as underdogs against a revitalised and dominant Bayern Munich side.
