Limassol (dans la partie grecque de Chypre) : violences grecques lors d'un match entre les équipes de volleyball féminin chypriote-grecque et turque

Fan violence mars women’s volleyball game

Published on December 10, 2011

A WOMEN’S volleyball game between Cypriot team Apollon and Turkish side Galatasaray in Limassol on Thursday night was marred by fan violence and the destruction of pitch facilities.

The game was watched by approximately 500 Apollon fans,
and was part of the CEV Cup.

According to the police, once the game started, Apollon fans stormed and destroyed the ground’s restrooms, as well as hurling objects onto the pitch.

A 28-year-old Limassol resident, who had come on to the pitch during the match, was arrested, charged and subsequently released.

Police used tear-gas after the game to avert any altercation between the fans, but a police car’s windshield was nonetheless smashed.

It remains unclear whether there was any specific incident which sparked the violence, and the police investigation is still under way.
