A football match Spartak-TSSKA in Luzhniki, Moscow – let’s focus not on the game itself but on its arrangement this time.
Sportivnaya metro station only lets people out and not in. Right at the exit fans are separated to prevent skirmishes.
It’s almost impossible to bring something prohibited, fans pass five points of inspection.
Fans may bring plastic bottles but without caps in the case they decide to throw full bottles in each other.
Fans start coming 2 hours before the match, the stadium opens 1,5 hours before. It’s the point of inspection at the entry to the stadium. Tickets are checked automatically by means of bar codes. However some “craftsmen” try to forge them …
The main point of inspection after the entry, here fans are searched again. Girls have a separate passageway.
At the grand stands fans are checked for the last time.
Resellers are always hard to detain. Violations are often recorded on cams.
Some days before the match fan clubs bring big banners. The administration should watch over them – everything must be decent. Sometimes fans resort to cunning and shift letters on the banners …
The other day one of the fans was killed, the banner says “mourning”, fans agreed not to fight this time.
In case fans want to run to the field
Nearly 2500 people are standing guard
Flares are lit
Dogs don’t like flares to be thrown on the field
The first goal is kicked by Spartak
So many T-shirts saying “I’m Russian”
The dog seemed to support TSSKA…
One fight happened anyway: 3 fans of non-Slavic appearance were asked to leave, they started fighting, throwing chairs, one policeman was hospitalized. In general 11 policemen sought for medical advice.
This spot after the match, it’ll be compensated by the club.
All fans are recorded on cameras. Main violations – pyrotechnics use, fighting, broken chairs. During fighting police doesn’t interfere, it’s quite dangerous. However hooligans are detained after the match. To avoid it they move to other sectors.
Goal kicked by TSSKA .. another one ..
Thу end – this time Spartak lost the game!
Traditionally hand-out fans leave first.
