The alert after the precedents in the Campania capital in December 2015. But the Warsaw club sent an official letter of protest to UEFA
For reasons of public order, the transfer of Polish Legia Warsaw fans to Naples for the Europa League match on 21 October was prohibited. Match considered at risk, also considering the previous legia Warsaw fans in Naples in December 2015 (several injured at the time, even among the police). And without neglecting the clashes that took place in Zagreb by the Polish ultras in August, for the Champions League play-off against Dinamo.
On the attack
However, the Polish club issued a harsh statement: “Despite the club’s efforts for more than a week, the competent Italian authorities have maintained the decision not to sell tickets to Polish citizens for the Napoli-Legia match. We consider these actions entirely unjustified and discriminatory. The club immediately took action to allow our fans to participate in the match: talks were held between the club’s boards and an official letter was sent to the competent Italian authorities. The Club’s activities were supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Rome. This is a scandalous decision, completely unjustified, and deprives our fans of the full right to support their team during away matches. it is against the sporting spirit and against the values on which European football is based “.
No mention of the previous fans of their fans, without forgetting that even fringes of Neapolitan ultras sought a clash in 2015 inside and outside the Fuorigrotta stadium. However, the Legia sent an official letter of protest to UEFA, guaranteeing its availability to welcome Neapolitan fans for the return match scheduled for November 4th.
