Hooligans cause over €25,000 of damages at Limassol’s brand new stadium

Hooligans on Wednesday caused over €25,000 of damages at the brand new “Alphamega” stadium in Limassol during the coastal city’s local derby between Ael and Apollon teams.

This is what Philenews reported on Friday, adding that hooligans from both teams tore up seats of the north and east stands during halftime and threw them at each other.

Police investigators have footage from the closed-circuit television surveillance of the stadium in their hands and arrests are imminent, the report also said.

The damage to the new stadium amounts to about €25,000 with the hooligans destroying more than 200 seats but also broke part of the glass partition and caused damage to the toilets of the stadium.

The atrocities took place after the end of the first half when a firecracker was initially thrown and then AEL fans approached the divider railing, leading to a reaction from Apollon supporters.

The incidents lasted for about five minutes and stopped after members of riot squad members rushed in.
