Feyenoord Fans Defy Travel Ban, Pose Security Threat Ahead of Roma Match

Rome authorities are on high alert today amid concerns of hundreds of Feyenoord ultras potentially arriving in the capital, despite a travel ban, to attend the Europa League return match against AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

The risk of Dutch supporters’ presence will be addressed today and tomorrow in the Provincial Committee for Public Order and Safety, scheduled for this morning at the Prefecture.

Law enforcement agencies, led by the Police Headquarters, will not only monitor the turnstiles at the Olimpico but also the city center, especially in pubs near Via Cavour and the Colosseum. There are fears of clashes with extreme factions of the Giallorossi supporters, as announced on social media. This information was reported by Corriere della Sera.

The security situation remains tense as authorities brace for potential disruptions and prioritize public safety measures ahead of the highly anticipated match. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.
