Vandalism at Stadium: Police Investigate Protest by Football Fans Against Club’s Management

“In connection with the case, we arrested a 19-year-old foreigner shortly after the crime. The police officers are intensively dealing with the whole matter and are investigating all the connections and circumstances of this case,” said the spokeswoman.

“At the moment, we have qualified the matter as damage to another’s property, however, it is not excluded that the legal qualification will be expanded during the examination,” added Skoupilová, adding that it is not possible to provide more detailed information yet, because “the examination is at the very beginning.”

In addition to the installation of pig heads, which were placed on concrete columns in front of the entrance, and “bloody” splashes, posters with inscriptions calling for the resignation of the club’s management were pasted on the glass door to the area where the first league team SK Sigma plays its matches.

Similar posters with the text “Pigs in charge, give up command” appeared at the stadium already at the end of March. This is part of longer-term protests by fans of football team SK Sigma Olomouc against its management.

The club’s board of directors responded to the new form of protest already on Saturday afternoon.

“We are shocked by the vulgarity and aggressiveness of this act, which reminds us of the practices of the worst mafias. I can’t help but feel that this is a targeted effort to destroy our club in the last rounds of the regular season,” said Petr Konečný on behalf of the board of directors on the club’s website.

The sports manager of the club, Ladislav Minář, was supposed to have a bloodied pig’s head with a noose on his car in front of his house.
