Revel-PSG in the Coupe de France: fan zone, ticket sales, showcases… the city prepares for its big day

The entire town of Revel is now focused on “their” match against PSG on Sunday, January 7 at 20:45. Many of them will be at the stadium in Castres. Others will be given a nice party at home.

Monday marked the start of the home run towards the big game on January 7th. After spending sometimes hectic hours trying to grab the remaining spots for the match, those who managed to triumph against the saturated servers are now sharpening their weapons – figuratively speaking – for the big day: who wears the scarf, who wears the jersey? USR, T-shirt, bracelet… anything to adorn yourself in red and black. For those who can’t get tickets, there are still options to enjoy the upcoming big celebration.

A fan zone in the Claude Nougaro room

As of Tuesday morning, Revel Municipality announced that it will organize a fan zone for residents. We wrote about this last week, municipal teams predicted that not everyone would be able to buy tickets for the Pierre Fabre stadium in Castres. Luckily, the room was empty – the lottery ended at 6pm – and the Festival Committee immediately decided to take responsibility for the preparation and management of the evening of the event. “The broadcasting rights were offered to us by Bein Sport,” explains the mayor of Revel Laurent Hourquet.

Let’s meet on Sunday, January 7, at 20.00 in the Nougaro hall, which will switch to a football match configuration: one large screen and many smaller screens floating around the room, thus creating several areas. “We chose the option where people can sit,” explains the mayor, “but of course nothing prevents them from standing! We know it will be a great atmosphere!” 650 people will be able to enter and reservations are not required. possible.

Mobilization of the whole city

Jérôme Garcia, the elected official in charge of sports and health, can breathe: The work carried out together with his colleagues on Tuesday 12, the day after the draw, bore fruit, both in terms of the location of the meeting and the mobilization of the city and the city. vital forces were fully focused on the big day.

Merchants elsewhere are getting creative to show their support for US Revel: decorated windows, videos… everyone from hair salons to pharmacies, including bars and craft stores, is playing the game. There will be an official prize for the most beautiful window, a small, informal competition in the form of a wink. The whole city continues to turn red and black.

Beware of the black market for match tickets

The establishment of a black market for the resale of tickets also frustrates the fans, who actively participate in creating disappointment among those who want to watch the match in the stadium. While some people sell tickets at the purchase price, others are less hesitant and do not hesitate to sell them for 5-6 times the price. Be careful: As a reminder, prices per place range from 20 to 40€.
