Updated: Jun 25, 2022
Before the start of the World Football Championship 2022, the Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League, among the five major leagues that many fans are concerned about, are slowly coming to an end shortly. The end of the competition was not so smooth and smooth. The seriousness even made France's interior minister, who held the Champions League final, ask to step down, and the outside world was highly questioning the next Olympics' execution ability.
The football event with high attention before the World Football Championship - the Champions League final caused a huge storm
The UEFA Champions League (UEFA Champions League) is a top-level football event that attracts much attention in addition to the World Football Championship. Before the start of the game, it was suddenly announced that it would be postponed due to on-site security issues, and the broadcast of events around the world was in chaos. The situation was confusing. Someone on the social networking site broke the news that the entrance of Liverpool fans outside the football stadium was in chaos. When the stadium security decided to temporarily close the wicket, someone jumped over the fence and forcibly entered the stadium. A bunch of fans with tickets were blocked outside the entrance gate and were unable to enter the stadium.
Due to the increasing severity of the incident, France dispatched the police. This decision can be said to be a big mistake. After the police arrived at the scene, they used tear gas and pepper spray on the fans. Many people's eyes became red and even caused breathing difficulties. The scene was even out of control. Official figures show that 105 fans were eventually detained, of which 39 were in custody. The UEFA Nations League announced the postponement of the game twice, and it took a full 36 minutes before the game officially kicked off. Many fans who watched the game with their children were afraid of the impact and forced to leave. The audience seats that should have been full were left with a lot of vacancies.
Is the fake ticket scandal a scam? UEFA's explanation of events is deceptive
Because the organizer of this incident, UEFA, and the French authorities of the host venue are deceiving, which makes the fans very uncomfortable.
At first, UEFA claimed it was because the fans were late. Later, together with the French interior minister, they accused at least 30,000 to 40,000 Liverpool fans of trying to break into the stadium with fake tickets or without tickets and causing the turnstile to fail. Liverpool FC said the fans were locked out of the stadium because the safety fence was out of order.
After investigation, the former's claim was deciphered. Although there were fake tickets found on the spot, the amount was not that exaggerated at all. Many fans who were accused of holding fake tickets even bought their tickets from official ticket outlets. The French government and UEFA's lies have been criticized and criticized by many parties. The French interior minister was asked to step down. As a last resort, UEFA publicly apologized and asked a third-party independent unit to investigate the incident. , the French president expressed hope that the victims of the incident would be compensated.
Some people think that the main reason for the chaos this time is that the final was originally scheduled to be held in Russia, but due to the influence of the Russian-Ukrainian war, the venue was moved to Paris, France, and France was temporarily unable to prepare. However, it was announced at the end of February this year that the location of the finals would be moved to France, which is really "temporary".
Ligue 1 is also in turmoil, and the execution ability of the 2024 Paris Olympics is questioned
In the relegation battle of the French Ligue 1 (Ligue 1) the day after the Champions League final, the former Ligue 1 club "Saint-Etienne Athletic Club" will be relegated to the second league because it failed to be relegated.
The results of the game came out, and the fans couldn't accept the result, so they got up in anger and threw smoke bombs at the team. Players suffered minor injuries.
At first glance, it seems that these rioting fans are solely responsible for this matter, but in fact, the stadium security personnel should also be responsible for this matter. Just like the laser pen incident that happened in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, normally these smoke bombs are Like laser pens, they cannot be brought into the stadium. The presence of this contraband in the court proves that this matter was premeditated, but the contraband was not broken when they entered the stadium.
As France prepares to host the 2024 Olympics, two sports conflicts occurred in less than two days. Both the security of the stadium and the capabilities of the French police have been questioned, which makes people worry about the next Olympics.
