After escorting the players from their hotel to the stadium, they noticed people on the esplanade selling tickets for the match without authorization. As they checked them, a man told them that one of them had sold him six – apparently real – tickets for 300 euros on Snapchat, but that once he paid, the seller deleted the images of the conversation.

The four men, aged 32, 33, 35 and 38, were arrested at 8:10 pm and were still in police custody on Saturday afternoon. Le Havre AC invited the family of the gentleman who had been scammed to watch the match.
