Since February 2, the gauge of 5,000 spectators in the stadiums has been lifted.
Something to delight Losc which receives PSG on Sunday for one of its biggest recipes of the year.
“The timing is perfect.
“Even anonymously, we recognize at Losc that the programming of Lille-PSG could not fall better in the calendar.
After weeks spent in stadiums with a maximum of 5,000 seats for health reasons, the lifting of restrictions on February 2 came at the right time for the northern club.
Because on Sunday, the Pierre-Mauroy stadium will be full for the first time in two years against the stars of the capital. Chance of the calendar, this Losc-PSG marks the end of the gauges to the delight of the players in the game like Jocelyn Gourvennec. " It's great. A gauge of 5,000 seats in a stadium is not the same thing in Brest with a 15,000-seat Francis-Le-Blé stadium than in Pierre-Mauroy or at the Vélodrome where it's a bit empty. Having full stadiums again is energizing, more festive. It really is better for everyone. For the supporters, it's more fun to be in the stadium than in front of the TV. We are going to have a full stadium and that is very good news, ”rejoices the Lille coach.
Well, without playing the killjoy either, there will still be some restrictions on Sunday evening.
Until February 15, the refreshments inside the stadium will be closed, the VIPs will not be allowed to stand in the lounges and the visitor parking lot can only be filled halfway.
Not enough to make it a disease financially unlike the Lensois neighbor who lost a lot of money in January with four home games (Lille, Rennes, Marseille, Monaco) in front of a gauge of 5,000 spectators.
Losc is doing well economically, not Lens
“A match is a million euros in turnover and the net margin is between 500,000 and 650,000 euros per match.
When you can have 5,000 spectators, it costs 500,000 euros net per match ”explained Arnaud Pouille, the general manager of RC Lens, on January 31 in
La Voix du Nord.
None of this in Lille where the only meeting impacted was the one against Lorient on January 19 which would not have moved the crowds anyway.
The biggest revenue of the year with the reception of PSG and (probably) against Chelsea in the knockout stages of the Champions League on March 15, Losc is doing very well economically.
“A very nice poster for a return home”
But also sportingly on the side of players eager to challenge PSG in a great atmosphere.
“Football is about sharing all the more with the supporters.
They are passionate people who will push us.
It's a very nice poster for a homecoming.
All the ingredients are there for a great evening, ”announces Benjamin André, the Lille midfielder.
Our Ligue 1 file
Because beyond the stories of big money, it is also a shock between the title champion of France and his runner-up last year, between the two French teams qualified in the round of 16 of the Champions League.
In short, very heavy to celebrate the return to happy days in the stadiums.
