On Wednesday, the Regional Directorate of the Police Force in Bratislava turned to the Bratislava-Nové Mesto district with a request to ban the meeting, which is scheduled for Sunday, May 8. The members of the SFZ Executive Committee, as the organizer of the final, approved the holding of the match on Tehelné pole. “To date, the situation looks like we are preparing the finals of the Slovak Cup according to plan, ie at the National Football Stadium. But it is true that on Friday at 10.00 there will be a meeting of representatives of the Slovak Football Association, Bratislava-Nové Mesto and the police. According to that, I will direct our next steps and, of course, we will also inform the public about everything new, “said Monika Jurigová, Director of PR SFZ, on Thursday. Tickets for both Slovan and Spartak fans went on sale for the cup derby. The ban for rivals, which prevents fans of both clubs from visiting the opponent’s stadium until the end of the season, does not apply to the duel. In the October meeting of the Fortuna League, riots took place at the Anton Malatinský Stadium in Trnava. They did not finish the match and contaminated it for the benefit of the guests. The Slovan – Trnava duel is also on the program in FL on Sunday, May 1, but only with the participation of domestic fans. “We don’t see it well and it doesn’t add up well, but, unfortunately, we as players will probably have a hard time influencing it. It’s a bit of an unfortunate solution, waiting a week, ten days before the match to announce the scene. “I think it should have been decided earlier, maybe even the one around it would be smaller,” said Trnava defender Martin Skrtel, who also reacted to the possibility of playing for the trophy. without spectators: “Then it doesn’t make sense.” Photo gallery (2) Source: TASR / Lukáš Grinaj Author: © Zoznam Source: TASR
