Visiting Fans Not to be Allowed for Five Years

The municipalities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam have announced that, for the next five years, visiting fans will not be allowed at soccer games between the Amsterdam Ajax and the Rotterdam Feyenoord teams. This was decided after the hooliganism between the two teams’ fans during last week’s game in Amsterdam. The teams had been warned already in April 2005 when a game between them in Rotterdam ended in chaos. At that time Feyenoord fans clashed with members of a special police unit.
