The material toll of the damage is enormous: 198 seats torn off, the toilets and lighting destroyed, as well as an access door to the VIP area and damage to a grate separating the interior passageways. The bill that the Standard will receive will be steep. All 198 seats will be repaired by Sunday.
The police strongly advise Standard supporters not to come to Parc Astrid on Sunday. The police will be very vigilant. “We will be on a war footing,” said Commissioner Boucar. “Any Standard supporter will be immediately arrested.”
