Saint Etienne stadium closed indefinitely after crowd trouble

Saint Etienne stadium closed indefinitely after crowd trouble

Wednesday 18th December 2019

Saint Etienne have been ordered to close their stadium after fireworks and flares were set off during their match against PSG.

The ban comes from the French football federation after "massive use" of fireworks and flares in the stands during the 4-0 defeat.

Saint Etienne's Stade Geoffroy-Guichard has been closed before - last time in 2017 after crowd trouble in the derby against Lyon. That time, fans defied the ban by breaking into the ground and forcing a behind-closed-doors to be temporarily halted.

The French side currently sit 14th in Ligue 1, eight points above the relegation zone.
