‘Away fans are banned’, but Frankfurt fans who came to Naples… crash concerns

Hundreds of Eintracht Frankfurt fans flying to Naples away despite being banned from entering.

Napoli will play the second 메이저사이트leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-2023 European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples, Italy on the 16th (Korean time). Since Napoli beat Frankfurt 2-0 in the last leg, they are likely to advance to the quarterfinals.

Frankfurt fans were barred from entering. The Italian Interior Ministry took this action on the basis of an incident in which Napoli fans who visited Frankfurt, Germany, were attacked by Frankfurt fans in the last game. Originally, it banned Germans from buying tickets, but after encountering protests, it was limited to people born or living in Frankfurt.

But Frankfurt fans found a way to get into the stadium. There was a report by Calcio Napoli 24 that more than 400 soccer fans from Germany had arrived in Naples. It is moving by land via several cities such as Bergamo, Salerno and Bari.

It was also spotted that Atalanta supporters were welcoming Frankfurt supporters. If Atalanta supporters had systematically helped buy tickets, there could be a lot of away fans who broke through the crackdown and entered the Napoli stadium.

According to a video shared by local magazine ‘Calcionapoli 24’, a group of Frankfurt supporters chanted “Eintracht” as they arrived in the city of Naples. The police escorted and watched them and moved them to their lodgings. There is a growing concern about clashes in stadiums and downtowns before and after matches.
