About a month after the introduction of 5,000-person gauges in stadiums, the clubs were able to welcome their fans without restriction for the first time this year. This weekend, the program was loaded with meetings like LOSC-PSG, OM-SCO Angers or even ASSE-MHSC, On behalf of the 23rd day of Ligue 1. The lifting of constraints has produced its effect, since more than 227,000 supporters made the trip to see a match of the French championship. You have to go back to the 13th day to see such a high accumulation.
