The return to Allianz Riviera
In response to a club poll last weekend, 85% of Le Gym’s season ticket holders said they would like to club to open Allianz Riviera to the maximum authorised number of supporters, rather than continue with matches played behind closed doors. Priority reservations for the match between Nice and PSG will be available from 10AM Friday on the club’s online ticket-office. First in, first served. Those that miss out will be guaranteed a return to Allianz Riviera for the next home match against Nantes.
In keeping with the decision to involve its season ticket holders, OGC Nice sent an e-mail this weekend to its most loyal supporters inviting them to answer the following question: "As long as the restrictions remain in place, do you prefer matches behind closed doors or the possibility of attending matches on a first-come, first-served basis between season ticket holders on the available seats, with a principle of rotation from one match to the next to encourage everyone to return to the stadium gradually."
To this question, subscribers showed a clear preference; 85% answering in favour of a return to Allianz Riviera, in accordance with the 5,000-person capacity currently authorised in France for sporting events, and by complying with all the measures put in place, both in terms of seating arrangements and access conditions.
OGC Nice will comply with this wish, and will apply it from the next match, against Paris Saint-Germain, on Sunday 20 September (Rd.4, kick-off 13:00 CET), and until the end of the restrictions.
