The Prefect of Police of the Bouches-du-Rhône has finally reversed his decision…
PSG will take on Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on Sunday 23 August at 9pm. To avoid any excesses in Marseille, the city of Marseille has decided to take strong measures.
According to Le Parisien, the prefect had decided to ban PSG from wearing the PSG jersey this Sunday from 3pm to 3am, or even to wear the colours of the Parisian club in the centre of Marseille.
The Bouches-du-Rhône police prefect had taken a strong decision to “prevent any disturbance of public order”.
Facing the controversy, the prefect decided to cancel his decision and therefore to authorise the wearing of the PSG jersey in Marseille on Sunday 23 August.
The PSG coach was not able to get the ball in the net, and the Bouches-du-Rhône police prefect cancelled his decision to ban the wearing of PSG shirts in Marseille on Sunday 23 August, but he was unable to prevent any disturbance to public order.
The French police chief preferred to go back on his decision and repeal the ban, which was clearly against certain freedoms, as reported by AFP, as he feared the LDC (Paris-Bayern) final on Sunday, as had been the case after PSG-Leipzig’s victory in the Marseille city.

Aware that this is a great moment for Parisians, the prefect asks to respect just a few rules to avoid it getting out of hand:
“We urge Parisian fans who will be watching the Final in Marseille to refrain from wearing ostentatious signs in the public space and to show moderation in their possible celebrations so as not to be taken to task”.
