The final of the Champions League between Liverpool and Real Madrid starts later. According to the management of the Stade de France in Paris, the measure was taken for security reasons. The organization is probably concerned, because many fans were unable to reach the stadium in time due to large crowds. This could lead to a stampede on the entrances as many people have been waiting for more than two hours and cannot enter.
Images on social media show that in some places the security personnel are unable to stop the supporters. There are also reports that hundreds of people have entered the stadium without a match ticket, leaving no room for people with an entrance ticket.
The match should have started at 9 p.m. Initially, there was talk of a delay of fifteen minutes, now it is questionable whether that will be achieved.
