The FC Copenhagen filed a complaint with UEFA the treatment their fans received during the match Seville held at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium on Tuesday where Jorge Sampaoli’s team won 3-0, securing third place in their Champions group and, therefore, the right to play in the Europa League.
The Danish club is particularly complaining about the treatment given by police officers and members of private security hired by Sevilla, who carried out, as it denounced, “illegal and humiliating” searches of fans at the entrance of the stadium, that its claims did not cause any problems. Around 1,500 Danish fans turned up to watch the game on match day five of the group stage.
“FC Copenhagen has filed a complaint with UEFA regarding the treatment of our fellow travelers in Seville, who were far from being welcomed or treated as they deserved by the Spanish authorities or Sevilla FC security personnel.
FC Copenhagen fans behaved in an exemplary manner before, during and after the match in Seville, but when they arrived at the stadium they were ignored by local authorities and security personnel at the entrances.
Among other things, potentially illegal and embarrassing searches of our fans have been conducted, and others have experienced rough treatment and unreasonable suspicion.
We have been gathering information about the events of the last few days and have now sent an official complaint to UEFA, asking them to investigate the circumstances behind the completely unnecessary rough treatment of our fans, who did not cause any problems in Seville.” which the Danish club published through its social media channels, as well as on its website.
