France-Germany: gatherings, bars, curfew ... what is allowed or not this evening


If the members of the government finally announced a "tolerance" to let the supporters of the France team return home,

A few hours or minutes before the entry into the running of the French team, world champion and vice-champion of Europe, against Germany, many French people are still uncertain.

Where to watch the game?

With whom ?

For how much ?

What is allowed?

How to respect the curfew?

We take a look at what you can do, as a supporter or a trader.

A tolerance to return after the match

This Tuesday morning, Roxana Maracineanu, the Minister for Sports affirmed, on Franceinfo, that there will be "tolerance for people who return home after following the match in a cafe or restaurant".

As early as last night, even though the government had announced that there would be no exemption from the curfew for national team matches, Gérald Darmanin asked "the police to show particular leniency ”during checks“ of people who return home after watching the game outside their home ”.

"If we are checked at 11:15 pm in public transport, near his home, there will be no problem," assures Laëtitia Vallar, spokesperson for the police headquarters, which will deploy 850 police officers on Tuesday evening .

"We will intervene if people come together, do not respect barrier gestures, do not wear a mask," she adds on BFMTV.

No broadcast of the match on the terrace in many cities

Since June 9, restaurants and bars can welcome the public at 100% of the capacity of their terraces outdoors, and 50% indoors and always within the limits of six at the table.

If in the national texts, nothing prohibits the broadcast of the match of the France team, on the ground, it will be much more complicated.

Several prefects or mayors, as in Côtes-d'Armor, Rennes, Colmar or even Paris, have in fact prohibited the installation of screens on the terrace.

Others have advised against it.

The goal is to avoid gatherings, consumption while standing (which is prohibited) and non-compliance with barrier gestures.

This is what the police fear.

In Paris, a device and personnel will be deployed to prevent this.

On the other hand, it is still possible to broadcast indoors, where seats will be expensive with the gauge at 50%.

Many restaurateurs also regret that there are no national instructions and that each prefect or mayor decides.

“It is frankly not easy to navigate, regrets Paul, inhabitant of Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine) who is still looking for the best solution.

We wanted to go vibrate in Paris with friends, finally this option is moving away ... I will look in the bars in my neighborhood and otherwise it will be option 3, that of withdrawing with beers at home, ”describes the young man .

Groups of more than 10 still prohibited

It could be the stupid ticket.

After a victory for the Blues, let's all dream, two distinct groups of six friends meet in the street to redo the match, while finishing their drink to go home for example.

Gatherings of happy supporters spontaneously form in certain streets or emblematic sites.

Realistic scenarios, and yet "all this is prohibited," recalls the Paris police headquarters, which reiterates that all gatherings of more than 10 people, not declared, are still prohibited.

However, there remains the option of fan zones or giant screens deployed by rare municipalities, such as in Bron, near Lyon, which were able to obtain the prefect's agreement. They then respect a strict protocol with a maximum of 5,000 people, all seated, with access thanks to the health pass for more than 1,000 people. Having trouble imagining their fellow citizens being tested before each group match, the cities that wanted to bring together supporters have often limited the gauge to 1,000 people, so as not to have to call on the health pass and manage a smaller crowd.

Ultimately, the easiest way would be for our Blues to qualify for the quarter-finals, which will be played in July. From June 30, it will be possible to open fan zones with standing spectators or to gather on the terrace, always respecting social distancing.
