PSG Ultras end strike, will attend match at Auxerre
PSG will travel to play Auxerre on the road for MD36 of the Ligue 1 season trying to win a historic 11th Ligue 1 title away from the Parc des Princes. They will need to earn more points than second-place Lens, and they will have to do it knowing all other results as this game will take place in the final slate of the weekend, on Sunday evening.
The Parisian players will be, once more, accompanied by their beloved ultras in the shape of the Collectif Ultras Paris after the CUP won their battle with the PSG board and ended their strike this past midweek, making their return to all matches played by PSG teams in multiple sports from this week on, including football and handball.
The supporters of PSG will occupy the visitors' tribune of the Abbe Deschamps with the CUP securing 400 seats out of the 900 available spots for visiting fans next Sunday, according to RMC Sport.
The CUP made their first return to action on the stands earlier this week during the PSG Handball match against Kiel, and they will travel with the football side to Auxurre for their next two games on the road as well as attending the grand finale at the Parc des Princes in MD38, most probably with the title already in their bag.
Despite the temporary suspension of their activities, which lasted only a week, the CUP and PSG held discussions to address recent incidents such as protests outside the club's headquarters and Neymar's residence, as well as ticket cancellations and their ban from attending the game against Troyes.
In a recent press release, the CUP expressed their desire for all PSG fans to revel in the imminent historic 11th Ligue 1 title that awaits the club. The supporters' group acknowledged several positive developments in the talks with the club's board, including the return of the Hechter jersey for the 2024-25 season, with plans underway for its permanent reinstatement. The CUP also highlighted improvements made to the organization's ticketing platform, ensuring a smoother ticketing experience for fans.
The CUP presence in Auxerre will undoubtedly add fervor and vocal support to PSG as they strive for victory. The dedication and enthusiasm of the ultras will be a testament to the unwavering spirit of PSG fans as they continue to stand by their beloved club, with the Ultras of Paris Saint-Germain being a staple of the French side since their inception in 1970.
