PSG maintains the suspense over the opening of the ticket office for the trip to Dortmund on February 18, while tickets for the return match of March 11 have already sold out and sell for more than 150 euros on the official purse of the club. The first leg will go on sale within two weeks, according to the club’s travel habits.
We already know, however, that during the match at Signal Iduna Park, PSG will have 3,300 tickets in the visitors area located in the bend between the East stand and the North stand. There is no doubt that this quota will be filled by the Parisians. It meets UEFA criteria: 5% of the stadium’s capacity.
Part of the CUP opts for the bus
That of the old Westfalenstadion is reduced to 66,099 seats in the Champions League configuration, while the enclosure welcomes a little more than 80,000 spectators in the league, notably in the famous “yellow wall” which brings together 25,000 standing fans.
PSG has decided to allocate 1,000 tickets to the Collectif Ultras Paris (CUP), which will travel for the most part by bus to cover the 600 km to the German city. Some members of the group may be tempted to take tickets from the “general” quota, lest the quota allocated to the CUP be insufficient to meet the – strong – internal demand. The presence of ultras could therefore be a little wider.
Closing the European tour of “You’ll never walk alone”
The draw was very favorably received by the group, which hopes to demonstrate its “know-how”, after a remarkable atmosphere in Glasgow, Liverpool or Manchester in recent seasons, for example. There is no particular friendship or antagonism with Dortmund fans, but this audience was often presented as a source of inspiration by the CUP when they returned to the Parc des Princes in 2016.
Wink of the draw, Parisian fans will complete their tour of Europe of “You’ll never walk alone”. The anthem borrowed from the group Gerry and the Pacemakers is played at the entrance of teams at Signal Iduna Park, as at Celtic Park, Anfield and at the Jan-Breydel stadium in Bruges, recently visited by PSG.
