Colombian soccer association Dimayor received unexpected support for
their rule that forbids the wearing of team colors by away fans, as
Copa Mustang clubs agreed to accept the measure.
Thursday’s meeting of Dimayor with representatives of the 18 clubs, was expected to have the two parties clash over the new measures that were recently taken after violence in Colombian soccer stadiums.
According to these rules, visiting fans are no longer allowed to wear team colors or carry club-related objects the moment they enter the stadium.
Dimayor president Ramon Jesurun explained that they had been trying for years to “eradicate these vandals from soccer,” eventually with these measures as result.
“Possibly, the good fans will suffer from the bad ones and may be disadvantaged, but we believe that it is necessary that the people understand those that visit soccer games will have a nice experience,” he added.
