The Paris Saint-Germain Champions League against Manchester United will kick off next Tuesday, but with no spectators, despite the French government imposing a night curfew in the capital, the country’s sports ministry told AFP.

“Exceptions are possible, with or without spectators, depending on the time,” the ministry said on Wednesday when asked about sporting events after President Emmanuel Macron had previously announced the curfew.

Residents of Paris and the surrounding Ile-de-France region, as well as eight other French cities, will no longer be allowed to be outdoors for at least four weeks from Saturday between 9:00 p.m. (1900 GMT) and 6:00 a.m. (04:00 GMT) except for essential reasons.

The measures were announced in response to the record rate of Covid-19 infection rates.

The curfew will therefore not prevent the Champions League game at the Parc des Princes from continuing, but will ensure that it happens behind closed doors.

The most recent sporting events in and around Paris allowed up to 1,000 visitors.
