Marseille fans remain banned from Sunday’s match at rival Paris Saint-Germain after the French football league turned down an appeal from the club.
PSG fans were also banned from the game at Marseille’s Stade Velodrome on March 19.
The French league confirmed the decision amid fears that there would be a repeat of the violent scenes which occurred when the sides met in Marseille last season.
But factions of rival PSG fans fought each other in the streets around PSG’s Parc des Princes and a 38-year-old supporter died after serious head injuries and a coma.
Marseille wanted to bring around 1,500 fans this weekend, and PSG vice president Phillipe Boindrieux suggested “Marseille’s buses and the arrival of the fans toward the Parc des Princes” could be safely assured.
The issue was also considered at government level, with the Interior Ministry noting its concerns in a letter received by the LFP on Tuesday.
PSG has disbanded numerous supporters groups from both ends of the stadium, the Kop Boulogne and Tribune Auteuil. Boulogne has long harbored far-right extremists among its number and they clashed with mixed-race members of Auteuil factions last February before last season’s Marseille game.
