French Minister: This is a victory for French football


French Sports Minister Roxana Maracignanu has welcomed Paris Saint-Germain to return to the field in front of fans after a long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is a victory for French football and for sports in France, the minister told the team Ekip today.

Champions Paris Saint-Germain played a friendly match on Sunday against second division Le Havre, and the stadium had 5, 000 spectators. The capacity of the facility is 25 thousand seats. Maracinyanu added that for players and fans, this is a return to normalcy, even with such a small audience.

The limit of 5, 000 people for public events in France has been imposed by the French government, but this could be reconsidered, especially for some of the larger stadiums. But we must follow the advice of the Ministry of Health, the minister added.

The last match of the French championship was Lille against Olympique Lyonnais on March 8, before Ligue 1 was suspended due to the global pandemic. PSG won the friendly match against Le Havre with 9:0. This is part of the team`s preparations for the Champions League, which resumed with a tournament in Portugal on August 12. France is particularly hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic with more than 30, 000 deaths.
