Liverpool-Real Madrid: clashes, intrusions, tear gas … what really happened around the st – LaDepeche.fr

-

The essential The Liverpool/Real Madrid Champions League final started more than 30 minutes late due to overflows on the forecourt of the Stade de France and poor organisation. 9:00 p.m., 9:15 p.m., 9:30 p.m…. it was finally at 9:36 p.m. that the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid could begin. The whistle was given after an interminable wait of the supporters in the stadium, the viewers of TF1 and the mini-concert of the opening ceremony with the Cuban singer Camila Cabello. The start of the match was delayed by more than 30 minutes.

The arrival of many supporters resulted in imposing queues to pass the security checks. The fault, according to the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin, to “thousands of British ‘supporters’, without tickets or with counterfeit tickets”.

Thank you to the very many police forces mobilized this evening in this difficult context. pic.twitter.com/gEXCqPhWmZ— Gérald DARMANIN (@GDarmanin) May 28, 2022 Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra also pointed the finger at English media in a message on Twitter: “Attempts at intrusion and fraud thousands of England fans made it difficult for the stewards and the police to do their job, but they will not tarnish this victory”. Bravo @realmadrid for this 14th title in #LigueDesChampions! The attempts of intrusion and fraud by thousands of English fans have complicated the work of stewards and police forces but will not tarnish this victory. Violence has no place in stadiums.— Amélie Oudéa-Castéra (@AOC1978) May 28, 2022 The turnstiles were blocked by thousands of spectators who bought fake tickets that did not work. In the evening, the organizers of UEFA gave explanations in a press release. “As the match approached kick-off, the turnstiles on the side of the Liverpool stands were blocked by thousands of spectators who bought counterfeit tickets which did not work. This created a backlog of spectators trying to to enter the stadium and as a result, kick-off had to be delayed by 35 minutes to allow as many spectators with valid tickets as possible to enter the stadium”. 6,800 police, gendarmes and firefighters were mobilized. Photo AFP The Liverpool club has requested an investigation. “We are extremely disappointed with the access issues and perimeter breaches suffered by Liverpool supporters,” the club wrote in a press release. “It’s the biggest game in European football and fans shouldn’t have to go through the kind of scene we’ve seen.” Liverpool and Real Madrid were awarded 20,000 tickets each for this Champions League final. Gates climbed with bare hands At the same time, dozens of people did not hesitate to climb the imposing gates around the Stade de France and, once inside, to run towards the stairs leading to the Stade de France to watch the game for free. This situation led to interventions by the police and the mobile gendarmerie who did not hesitate to use tear gas sprays, resulting in the closure of several access points to the Stade de France. The Paris police headquarters had nevertheless mobilized 6,800 police officers, gendarmes and firefighters.

Liverpool fans were able to enter the Stade de France just before half-time and Karim Benzema’s disallowed goal for Real Madrid. Olympic boxing champion Estelle Mossely was among the victims of these incidents. She was able to return an hour after the start of the meeting. “I was gassed twice, jostled. A bottle landed near me. What happened at the Stade de France is scandalous. Inadmissible”, tells the boxer to the Parisian. 174 injured, 39 in custody Once the meeting started, clashes continued on the forecourt of the Fance stadium. The police again had to use tear gas and even charge the violent individuals to disperse them. 174 supporters were slightly injured. Police arrested 68 people, 39 of whom were eventually taken into custody. At the end of the match, the two fan zones were evacuated without incident or damage. #UCLfinal | The two fan zones were calmly evacuated and closed by the police.
\ud83d\udc49 No incident to report in these places pic.twitter.com/Wim89gw5Oc— Prefecture of Police (@prefpolice) May 29, 2022 Worrying 2 years from the Paris Olympics These scenes of violence are questionable. Since 1998, the Stade de France has hosted many sporting events and concerts. Welcoming and managing a large crowd is an exercise that is mastered. But how could security have been so overwhelmed? A situation that is cause for concern in the run-up to the Rugby World Cup from September 8 to October 28, 2023 and the Summer Olympics in Paris from July 26 to August 15, 2024. UEFA promises to achieve urgently an audit with the police, the French authorities and the French Football Federation.
