This Saturday, June 25, Groupama Stadium will host an extraordinary concert, with approximately 73,000 spectators expected to mark the arrival of Indochina. How will the organizers deal with this unprecedented crowd in Lyon? Will a special safety device be put in place? How many security guards and other agents will ensure the safety of spectators, especially at a time when injections at festivals and concerts create psychosis?
Wanted, Groupama Stadium, which has been engulfed in preparations, is committed to ensuring that the “security system is of an optimal size to accommodate 73,000 people”.
When contacted, the prefecture, also, did not communicate details about the means implemented, in particular by the National Police.
Excessive crowd of municipal police
For their part, the Municipal Police and the Décines-Charpieu Town Hall are on the bridge. “Our numbers will be almost at maximum. We have even asked municipal police officers from Calwer et Coeur to come in as reinforcements,” explains the mayor, Lawrence Futra.
Some will take charge of the liquidation for housing, in order to “protect the population as much as possible” and will direct onlookers who may venture down the streets in search of parking spaces. What the elected official, who asked organizers to mark the streets in the direction of the Eurexpo parking lot, does not hope.
A worthy device for the Euro match, which the Mayor of Decines justifies: “We are in the Vigipirate plan, and as such, we must be very vigilant, because this will be an important event.”
