The events took place during the Ligue 1 match against Lille on Saturday (21st day of Ligue 1). “Without PSG, the Park no longer has princes”, “Hidalgo kills Paris and its magic” or “recovered by politicians, a stadium for the people”, was written on banners.

The Parisian ultras also chanted “Hidalgo resignation” on several occasions and insulted her, forcing the stadium announcer to speak again after having taken it the first time before the match because of homophobic chants.
