Five Nice supporters who invaded the pitch during the Ligue 1 match between Nice and Marseille at the end of August and who were to appear on Monday will finally be judged in February.

Also accused of having committed violence during this match, they saw their trial postponed due to the overload of the hearing, according to 



In the meantime, the defendants have been kept under judicial supervision with the obligation not to attend sports grounds.

The meeting between OGC Nice and OM on August 22, interrupted after the field was invaded by supporters, had been marked by many incidents.

A Nice supporter, author of a kick in the direction of the OM playmaker, Dimitri Payet, has already been tried on September 22 and sentenced to one year suspended prison sentence and five years of stadium ban.

Another man, accused of having made a Nazi salute during the same match and placed in pre-trial detention, will be tried Wednesday for “apologizing for crimes against humanity”.

At the time of these serious incidents, Nice was leading 1 to 0. The match will be replayed on October 27 on neutral ground in Troyes and a point has already been withdrawn from OGC Nice.


After the incidents against OM, how does the Gym plan to better secure the Allianz Riviera?
