Barcelona vice president explains Frankfurt fans' invasion at Camp Nou

Eintracht Frankfurt fans flooded Camp Nou in the Europa League clash.

Barcelona lost 3-2 in the return leg against Frankfurt this Thursday and were knocked out by the Europa League.

A reported 30000 Frankfurt fans made it to Camp Nou despite being allocated only 5000 tickets.

Barcelona vice-president Elena Fort apologised to all the partners about this unfortunate incident.

“We want to apologize to all the partners who came to the stadium. What we experienced yesterday is shameful and unacceptable. I deeply regret what happened.”

“The tickets were capped in Germany from the beginning. Barça had put the the necessary measures in place, and it has been demonstrated that they have not worked.”

“Barça, directly, has not sold tickets to the Germans,” Fort added.

She went on to explain how the fans could have found a loophole in buying these tickets.

“One of the ways that German fans were able to get the tickets was by contacting the resale companies which have Spanish credit cards to buy them. Surely, this is one way how they bought the tickets, but not the only one.”

“The club has to reflect upon this and make drastic decisions. One of the possible solution is to make the tickets nominal in future.”
