Aberdeen fans involved in brawl after match in Cyprus

Riot police armed with batons used pepper spray on Aberdeen fans as tempers flared after the club's Europa League defeat in Cyprus.
Dons supporters clashed with stewards following Aberdeen's 2-0 defeat at the AEK Arena.
Punches and kicks were exchanged before riot police wielding batons and aiming pepper spray at fans quickly took over, pushing supporters back.

Aberdeen chief executive Duncan Fraser appealed for calm from the pitch but his calls were ignored.
The Dons have launched an investigation into the crowd trouble.
A spokesman for the club said: "Following incidents at the end of this evening's match in Larnaca, the club can confirm it has commenced dialogue with the stadium operators, Apollon Limassol and the authorities.
"As part of this, the club has requested that CCTV footage is interrogated in order to assist matters.

"The club will not be making any further comment until the conclusion of this comprehensive investigation."

Dons boss hits out at police after fans ‘tear-gassed’ at Euro match

Aberdeen are set to launch an investigation into the ugly scenes in Cyprus as Dons fans were set upon by baton-wielding riot police.
Furious Dons boss Derek McInnes has hit out at the heavy handed treatment of Aberdeen fans following the 2-0 Europa League loss to Apollon Limassol.
Some Aberdeen supporters were left bloodied and bruised as riot police waded in and fired pepper spray at fans in Larnaca.
Aberdeen FC have confirmed they have opened dialogue with Cypriot authorities and Apollon and have requested to be given video footage of the trouble.
One Dons fan is understood to have been knocked unconscious by riot police.

In shameful scenes furious boss Derek McInnes also confirmed he was spat on by Apollon fans.
Swiss referee Stephan Klossner also came close to abandoning the game as flares were thrown onto the pitch, one towards keeper Joe Lewis.
McInnes said: “I heard the stewards were really heavy handed with our fans going in with tear gas and being really aggressive towards them.
“You expect it to be passionate and noisy, but when flares are being thrown at your goal-keeper and your fans are being treated the way they were it is unfair.

“When you see flares getting thrown onto the pitch and supporters behind the dugout spitting at myself and the staff.
“That is where stewards need to be more visible.
“When you hear the treatment our supporters got that’s when it really sticks in the throat.”
Aberdeen FC issued a statement before the Dons squad jetted back to the Granite City from Larnaca last night.

The statement said: “Following incidents at the end of this evening’s match in Larnaca, the club can confirm it has commenced dialogue with the stadium operators, Apollon Limassol and the authorities.
“As part of this, the club has requested that CCTV footage is interrogated in order to assist matters.”
It is the second European trip in succession that trouble has marred the tie.
A group of around 50 Dons fans were attacked by masked thugs in Mostar, Bosnia ahead of the game against NK Siroki Brijeg.

Legia Warsaw - FK Astana - 02/08/2017

Legia Warsaw fans display evocative banner and hold a minute's silence to mark anniversary of Warsaw Uprising prior to Champions League game

Legia Warsaw fans displayed an evocative banner marking the 73rd anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, prior to their Champions League clash with Astana on Wednesday night.
Fans displayed a large banner prior to kick-off on Wednesday night, which depicted a soldier with a gun to a child's head and the words: 'During the Warsaw Uprising Germans killed 160,000 people. Thousands of them were children'.
It was backed by fans in the home end holding up cards to form the white and red Polish flag, with '1944' embedded within it in black to mark the year of the uprising during the Second World War.

The club also held a minute's silence prior to kick-off. 
The uprising, which began on August 1, 1944, attempted to drive the advancing German army out of the city but ended in January 1945 after significant loss of life and with 85 per cent of Warsaw said to have been destroyed.  
Legia won Wednesday night's match 1-0 but were still knocked out following the Khazakhstan champions' 3-1 victory in the first leg.
But while their Champions League participation is over for this season, they are almost certain to be investigated by UEFA following Wednesday night's crowd display.

Celtic fans arrested over ‘paramilitary’ banners - 02/08/2017

Source : https://www.thetimes.co.uk/

Twelve Celtic fans have been arrested over banners that were displayed at last month’s Champions League qualifying match between the Glasgow club and the Northern Irish side Linfield.
A section of the home crowd unfurled paramilitary-style banners during the 4-0 victory at Celtic Park, leading to the club being fined more than £20,000 by Uefa, football’s governing body.
Police Scotland said that 12 men aged between 18 and 49 were arrested over “banners and material” at the match. They are expected to appear in court on August 24 and September 1.
Several large banners were displayed in the section of the stadium occupied by the Green Brigade supporters group during the match on July 19.
One showed a face in paramilitary-style black beret and dark glasses, while the other showed Rodgers alongside the slogan "Rodgers at work" - an apparent play on the IRA's "sniper at work" signs in South Armagh during the 1990s.
Other banners formed the phrase "Brendan's Undefeated Army" - another play on an IRA slogan.
Celtic subsequently announced that it would be closing the Green Brigade section for the club's next two matches.

Israeli football team attacked by Polish hooligans after match - 04/08/2017

Source : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/

Police investigating attack by masked fans against Hapoel Petah Tikva staff after friendly game

The Polish government condemned on Thursday the attack by masked soccer hooligans a day earlier on staff traveling with an Israeli football team following a friendly match in Poland, in which two people were lightly injured .

“We strongly condemn aggression and violence against any person,” Rafal Bochenek said in a statement.
Polish media and police said that the attack happened on Wednesday evening in Suchocin, about 35 kilometers (22 miles) northwest of Warsaw, following a friendly between Hapoel Petah Tikva and a local Polish club.
A police spokeswoman, Kinga Drezek-Zmyslowska, said police were alerted after the match about an attack on two men who had traveled with the Israeli team.

She said the attack was apparently carried out by soccer hooligans and that police were trying to identify them.
The Israeli embassy in Poland said the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism.
“The Israeli Embassy in Warsaw has been shocked and saddened by the news of another anti-Semitic incident,” said Michal Sobelman, a spokesman for the mission.

“These ‘pseudo-fans’ not only harm good Polish-Israeli relations, but first of all they are damaging to Poland’s image abroad,” she told Reuters.

A statement posted to the team’s official page said the game took place under police guard, and was incident-free. The team said that it wasn’t until after the officer left that the dozens of Polish fans descended on the Israelis.

Burnley FC - Hannover 96 - Friendly - 05/08/2017

Source : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ + https://www.thesun.co.uk/

Burnley's pre-season friendly with Hannover ABANDONED after crowd trouble at Turf Moor

Burnley's pre-season friendly with German side Hannover 96 was abandoned at half-time following ugly scenes at Turf Moor. 
Riot police were called in when supporters of the visiting side tried to attack home fans, with seats ripped out and hurled. 
The Premier League side were leading 1-0 thanks to a goal from Ben Mee when the decision was made to call off the match following advice from police and discussions during the interval. 

Pictures and video showed bare-chested Hannover fans wearing bandannas and mouthguards involved as trouble flared in the Cricket Field Stand at the Lancashire side's home.
That section of the ground housed a number of Burnley supporters and around 390 fans who had travelled from Germany.

Although order appeared to have been restored, the match was abandoned at the break.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche told the club's website: 'We went on police advice. We are still kind of piecing together the details but the police decided to make a decision and we fully support that, from myself and the team and the club.  

'The referee came to see me and said he wanted us in the room just to get a feel for our general thoughts. 
'I made it clear. It comes down to safety. The police decided to call it off and we support that. 
'We understand that. It's important what the team do, but it's not as important as people coming to a football match. You want safety. You don't want people to get hurt. It's a shame what has happened but it's done, as simple as that. 
'They (police) called us in and said, 'Look, we're going to call it for the safety of all involved, stewards, fans, police etc'. 
Chief Superintendent Chris Bithell, of Lancashire Police, explained the reasoning behind the decision.  

'A decision was taken to abandon the football match between Burnley FC and Hanover 96, following consultation between the police match commander, the referee and Burnley FC's grounds safety officer,' he said, in a statement released by the force. 
'This follows violent behaviour by a group of travelling Hanover fans, who attempted to attack fans in the home stands, as well as police officers and stewards. 
'Although a robust policing operation was in place for the match, based on pre-game intelligence, additional resources have now been brought in from across the county to ensure no further disorder occurs.' 
Some Hannover supporters were seen wearing mouth guards, a possible sign that trouble was premeditated, with police scrambling to prevent the German supporters from clashing head on with their rivals. 
But the players did not emerge for the second-half with police struggling to contain the hoards of travelling fans during the break, and the game was called off at 4.10pm UK time on police advice.

Seats were ripped up and thrown towards the home fans as the visiting supporters surged towards the Cricket Field Stand.
Burnley fans on the concourse said they saw Germans fans with knives, according to one onlooker inside the stadium.
Images of a seat being thrown towards Burnley supporters from the Hannover end emerged on social media with the club a fortnight away from their first home league game of the season against West Brom.
Hannover were promoted back to the Bundesliga having finished runners up in the German second tier last season, but ahead of their return to the top flight, their fans have brought shame on their club.
Last April, German police were forced to use water jets to prevent clashes between fans of Hannover and Union Berlin after hooligans had arranged to meet for a fight in a beer garden.

Aberdeen and Apollon Limassol charged by Uefa after fan trouble in Cyprus following Europa League clash - 07/08/2017

Source : https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/

ABERDEEN and Apollon Limassol have both been charged by Uefa after Thursday night’s shame game in Cyprus.

The Dons have been hauled up by beaks for crowd disturbances and having no stewards travelling with supporters – breaching Uefa’s safety and security regulations.

Limassol are also in hot water and have been cited with setting off fireworks, throwing objects onto the field and the improper conduct of the team.
The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on Thursday August 17.
It comes after bloodied Dons fans were set upon by baton-wielding riot cops after watching their side crash out of Europe last week.
The no-nonsense police used pepper spray on the 700-strong Red Army, who appeared to start brawling among themselves after the final whistle in Larnaca.
Fists and boots flew among the away support after the Dons lost 2-0 to the Cyprios. One supporter branded the scenes: “terrifying.”
Rival Apollon Limassol supporters taunted the brawling yobs, who then surged towards the home seats but were held back by stewards.

Aberdeen chiefs have already launched an investigation into the ugly scenes.
And it’s understood club bosses have identified the louts responsible – meaning they could be hit with life bans.
A Dons spokesman said: “We’re carrying out a thorough investigation.”
Furious Aberdeen fans also slammed boozy Red Army footsoldiers over the Cyprus shame game riot.

Supporters branded brawling yobs a “disgrace” as footage emerged showing a woman being attacked and terrified kids caught up in the sickening clashes.
But other Dons diehards blamed stewards and riot cops for sparking the mayhem as Derek McInnes’s men crashed out of Europe.
Fans relived the chaos as they returned from the disappointing defeat.
James Simpson told of his disgust on Twitter.
He wrote: “It happened in front of me and many so-called fans were a disgrace. Kids caught up in it were terrified. There was no need for kicking off.”

Fellow fan Stephen Pirie added: “Four kids with us were scared witless. They were in tears with the result before it all kicked off. Absolutely no need.”
And Ross Finnie said: “The behaviour of some Aberdeen supporters was appalling. There is no defending their actions whatsoever.
“I’ve never experienced CS gas before — that wasn’t fun. Don’t think I’ve ever left a match feeling more disappointed. Purely off the pitch reasons.
“If ever there is a reason booze is banned in Scottish grounds it was those scenes.”

Police officer and two stewards injured during crowd trouble at Burnley - 07/08/2017

Source : http://www.independent.ie/

A police officer and two stewards were injured during crowd trouble which forced the abandonment of Burnley's friendly against Hannover on Saturday.
Lancashire Police have opened an investigation following the disorder, which occurred after fans of the Bundesliga side charged towards home supporters during the first half at Turf Moor.
The Clarets were leading 1-0 at half-time thanks to a goal from Ben Mee when the announcement of the abandonment came.
Lancashire Police chief superintendent Chris Bithell said: "The disorder we saw (on Saturday) has no place in football, and certainly not in Lancashire.
"Children and families were in attendance at what was a pre-season friendly match, which should have passed peacefully and without incident - but which ended up being abandoned due to the behaviour of some of the travelling Hannover fans.
"Overnight we have collated and trawled through footage of the disorder, but we believe there will be more people who have videos on their phones which could help with our ongoing investigation.
"Anybody who has such footage is asked to send it to us as soon as possible."
Bithell had revealed on Saturday that a "robust policing operation" was in place based on "pre-game intelligence" and that additional resources from across the county had been brought in.
As a result of the violence, a police officer suffered a head injury and was treated at Burnley General Hospital. He has since been discharged.
Two stewards who suffered minor injuries were treated at the scene, and one, who suffered a dislocated shoulder, is currently undergoing treatment in hospital.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche backed the decision of the police to bring a premature end to the friendly.

He told the local press: "They called us in and said 'look, we're going to call it for the safety of all involved, stewards, fans, police etc'.
"That was pretty early. The police were in the referee's room, called me, went through the procedure, and obviously we fully support the police's decision."
Hannover released a statement on their website on Saturday night condemning the scenes.
It read: "Our attitude is clear: Hannover 96 condemns the incidents in the stadium and dissociates itself vehemently from any kind of violence.
"The club does not yet have any clear insights into the progress of the events. This information will be gathered in consultation with the police, the hosts from Burnley and fan representatives."

Danish police look to make arrests after new football fan violence - 07/08/2017

Source : https://www.thelocal.dk/

Sunday’s Danish Superliga match between rivals Brøndby and FC Copenhagen was marred by fan violence. Police expect to make arrests after consulting video evidence.

Season 17/18 - August 612306fcktroubles

Hooligans disrupted the match between the Copenhagen rivals for the second time in as many meetings, with fan violence after May’s Danish cup final between the two teams described as the worst in Denmark since 2000.
Police now have an increasing number of cases to follow up, with violent scenes in the FC Copenhagen (FCK) section of Brøndby Stadium after Brøndby scored to take a 1-0 lead in the closing stages of the match, which they won by the same score.
“Our investigators have been working through the evening and night to produce a number of cases. We have opened 42 cases so far. Of these, 19 are cases of violence against on-duty officers, and two of violence against stewards inside the stadium. So we are talking about a serious level,” Deputy Chief Inspector Brian Toftemann of West Copenhagen Police told broadcaster DR.
“We also have cases of fireworks violations, breach of laws relating to the wearing of masks and some narcotics,” he added.
Police will now examine a large amount of video material, Toftemann said.
“Based on that, we expect to identify and open even more cases and charges against yesterday’s culprits,” he added.

Six people have currently been charged as a result of the violent scenes, which left two officers and guards with minor injuries, reports DR.
The six people were arrested and then released after police questioning.
Photos from the away fans’ section of the stadium show masked fans throwing objects, pushing fences onto police and engaging in otherwise threatening behaviour towards the riot gear-clad police on duty inside the stadium.
FC Copenhagen manager Ståle Solbakken told DR that he hoped those responsible for the incident would be banned for life.
“It is terrible for everyone, first and foremost for FCK, and we must do everything to make sure those responsible are found and never enter a football stadium again,” he said.

FCK’s director Ander Hørsholt called the fan violence “scandalous and idiocy”.
“It is unacceptable, and I thought we had grown out of this several years ago, but we apparently haven’t,” he told the broadcaster.
Hørsholt added that he would do everything he could to aid the police investigations.
Toftemann said he was uncertain as to the underlying cause of the disturbances.
“I’ll have to leave it to the persons who started the disturbances to answer why on earth they became so upset. They’ve had goals scored against them before, so it must be a question they can answer,” he told DR.

German Club Promises to Help Catch Hooligans Who Wrecked 'Friendly' in England - 07/08/2017

Source : https://sputniknews.com/

British police and a German football club have promised to co-operate in a bid to bring to justice a group of hooligans who forced the abandonment of a pre-season "friendly." The match between Burnley and Hannover 96 had to be called off before half time on Saturday (August 5).



A few moments after Ben Mee put the Premier League team 1-0 up, dozens of German fans began storming through the segregation fence and hurling seats at the home fans.

Hannover fans, many of whom were wearing boxing-style gumshields and masks, fought with police and attempted to attack the English supporters.
There were also reports that some of the German hooligans were armed with knives.
Lancashire Police eventually advised the club to call off the game at their Turf Moor stadium and it was duly abandoned before the half time break.

"They called us in and said: 'Look, we're going to call it off for the safety of all involved, stewards, fans, police,' " said Burnley manager Sean Dyche.
"That was pretty early. The police were in the referee's room, called me, went through the procedure, and obviously we fully support the police's decision," he said.
The police are now appealing for mobile phone footage of disorder and say they are "determined to identify those responsible for causing injury and criminal damage."
"The disorder we saw has no place in football, and certainly not in Lancashire. Children and families were in attendance at what was a pre-season friendly match, which should have passed peacefully and without incident but which ended up being abandoned due to the behavior of some of the traveling Hannover fans. Both the constabulary and Burnley FC condemn this behavior," said Chief Superintendent Chris Bithell.

One police officer suffered a head injury and was treated in hospital and two stewards were also injured, one of whom had a dislocated shoulder.
The Bundesliga club put out a statement on Sunday (August 7) in which they distanced themselves sharply from the violence.
"At the end of the first half of the season there was a clash in one stand of the stadium. On the orders of the local police, it was decided not to continue the game into the second half," they said.
"A total of 300 Hanoverians had traveled to Burnley. The police could no longer ensure security for the spectators in the stadium because 45 people among Hannover 96 fans were 'out of control,' " said Hannover's statement.

The match was planned as a routine rehearsal for both teams before the first Premier League fixtures this coming weekend.
Burnley's first game is at Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday (August 12) while Hannover's first game in the Bundesliga is the following weekend at Mainz. They play Bonner SC in the German Cup on Saturday.
"Together with the British authorities, Hannover 96 will use all legal possibilities to identify and prosecute potential violators," said Hannover's statement.

Lancashire Police has admitted it had got some intelligence before the game that some of the 300 Hannover fans were planning trouble at the game.
"We are now continuing to work closely with staff and managers at Burnley FC, and their co-operation has been very much appreciated. Similarly, we would like to thank the fans who co-operated and left the ground without incident once the game had been called off," said Chief Superintendent Bithell.
After the game was abandoned extra police were drafted in from as far away as Manchester to escort the German fans out of the stadium and out of the town.

Hannover 96 has little history of football violence, although their local derbies with Eintracht Braunschweig are known to be lively, and the incident was a mystery to seasoned Bundesliga watchers.

Besiktas and Konyaspor under investigation after ugly brawl between fans during Turkish Super Cup

Season 17/18 - August 498877pitch

Turkey's interior ministry is investigating after hundreds of fans of league champions Besiktas and domestic cup winners Atiker Konyaspor brawled on the pitch during the Turkish Super Cup. 
Fans threw flares, litter and a knife onto the pitch and tore down the stadium's security netting as Konyaspor recorded a 2-1 victory with a 90th minute penalty.
Supporters of Atiker Konyaspor, the main team from Turkey's central Anatolian province of Konya, chanted slogans accusing Besiktas and its fans of links to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged a three-decade insurgency against the state.

Fans of Besiktas, an Istanbul side whose supporters include a vocal leftist element, responded with a song popular among secular Turks, aimed at the rival fans from Turkey's conservative heartland. The two groups rushed onto the field and fought after the final whistle.
The interior ministry, investigating the clash, said it would ensure that security measures were tightened. Both teams were under review for possible disciplinary action from the Turkish Football Federation, the Hurriyet newspaper said.

Violent clashes at Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United after pitch invasion

Violent scenes erupted following Middlesbrough's game against Sheffield United Saturday involving more than 200 fans.
Children as young as 10 were injured in the clashes and one police officer was hospitalised .

Cleveland Police said five people were arrested but more are expected as the investigation into the disorder continues.
The violence started following a pitch invasion by some Sheffield United fans after the visiting side thought they'd snatched a late equaliser against Boro, only for the goal to be disallowed.

The violence then continued outside the ground, with hundreds of fans involved and dozens of police and stewards called to try and keep the situation under control, the Gazette Liver reports.
One Sheffield United fan told The Gazette that fans were "chucking things at each other", adding: "It got heated."
Cleveland Police have now issued a statement condemning the violence and launching an investigation.
