UEFA: Main Responsibility for Chaos at Last May's Champions League Final Between Real Madrid and FC Liverpool
UEFA bears the primary duty for the chaos around the Champions League final between Genuine Madrid and FC Liverpool (1-0) last May.
This is the result of an independent examination that the European Football Association itself commissioned. As the organizer of the occasion, UEFA is responsible for the errors that almost led to its catastrophe, the report states. The final on May 28 was only begun with a 37-minute late after disorderly scenes around the stadium.
Long snakes had formed in front of the entrances to the fan blocks of FC Liverpool, there were excellent crowds in congested bottlenecks, the cops likewise stepped in with tear gas. UEFA General Secretary Theodore Theodorakis asked forgiveness once again on Monday in the name of UEFA with all those affected. I would particularly like to say sorry to the FC Liverpool fans for the news that were released prior to and during the video game and that had the impact that they were mistakenly blamed for the circumstance, said Theodorakis. Many fans felt reminded of the Hillsborough disaster of 1989 with 97 deaths, after which Liverpool advocates had actually at first been blamed. There were a total of 238 injuries and 105 arrests in the incidents in Paris, and around 2700 fans with a valid ticket might not get in the stadium. According to the French federal government, a huge fraud with tickets had actually caused the troubles at the Stade de France.
