Match: Динамо - Генгам

Published: 27/2/2015

 

"Many thanks" for the Olympic Stadium yesterday's match Dinamo - Guingamp. We both really enjoyed the fans stand in front of non-performing turnstiles, to 20.25 until opened the gate and started all in a row to pass. We certainly can and climb over the fence, as did some fans, but we disabled people in wheelchairs can not afford to jump the fence. Half of the fans got to match exactly to 20.35, thanks to those who opened the gate, and that could stand up in the morning on February 27, just in time for the draw and got to the stadium. Is the main stadium of the country can not make normal turnstiles. Stir in the game is not to blame, and blame everything on the bulk of the people can not, because I was in the Donbas - Arena with similar games, and everything was sedate and orderly ......... In general organization yesterday was disgusting.
