Reinforced security in Bruges for the arrival of Manchester United – Fil Info – Europa League

    The Europa League round of 16 first leg between FC Bruges and Manchester United, considered to be a “very high risk” match, will be subject to reinforced security measures on Thursday, according to the mayor (mayor) of Bruges. City police have taken various precautionary measures in the run-up to the match between the two clubs, given the rivalry between fans of the two teams. In August 2015, the arrival of the English club caused violent clashes between supporters. The police want to avoid further incidents. The police expect 1,500 English supporters.

    In order to avoid such incidents, the local police contacted the Flemish public transport company De Lijn and the taxi companies in Bruges, asking them not to “mix up” the supporters of the two clubs. In addition, catering establishments within a kilometer radius of the stadium and in certain areas of the city center will not be allowed to serve drinks in glass. Supermarkets and night shops were also asked not to promote alcohol that day and to respect the ban on glass.

    The majority of English supporters are expected to spend the night in the center of Bruges. The local police will therefore deploy additional men and also carry out checks on the roads leading to the stadium.
