After the violent incidents that occurred during the Angers-Marseille meeting on Wednesday evening, the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League imposed sanctions on the supporters of the two clubs. The Coubertin stand at the Angers stadium will be closed until further notice. Marseille supporters are deprived of travel outside.

New sanctions against French football. After the violent clashes that took place during the meeting between Angers and Marseille on Wednesday evening, the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) met on Thursday evening. The supporters of the two clubs were punished by the commission. The sanctions will come into force from the 9th day of Ligue 1, which takes place this weekend.

The disciplinary committee of the LFP has therefore decided to close the Coubertin stand at the Raymond Kopa stadium in Angers. It will remain closed until further notice, as a precaution. Located behind one of the goals, the stand accommodates both part of the Angevin supporters and the visitor park, in other words the opposing supporters. It was from this platform that the post-match incidents started on Wednesday night.

After throwing projectiles and exploding agricultural bombs, several dozen Marseille supporters left the visitor park to do battle with the Angevin ultras in the neighboring stand, without there being any injuries to deplore, before the stewards do not restore order. This stand will therefore be empty for the reception of Metz in 10 days. The others can continue to welcome the public.

Private travel supporters

But it is the second decision of the commission that is likely to spill the most ink. Marseille fans, who believe they have responded to provocations, will no longer be able to take place in their part of the stand during the next away matches. This will be the case on October 3, in Lille, where the visitors’ parking lot will be closed. This decision was also taken as a precaution.

The final decisions of the disciplinary committee will be known on October 6 after the submission of an investigation report.
