Champions League Fixture Suspended Following the Passing of a supporter

AEK Athens was scheduled to play Dinamo Zagreb in a Champions League qualification match.

The third round Champions League qualifier between AEK Athens and Dinamo Zagreb has been postponed following the stabbing murder of a fan on the eve of the game.

The Times of Malta reported that a 22-year-old Greek male was transported from the Nea Filadelfeia stadium, located on the outskirts of Athens, to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Greek police also reported that 83 individuals were apprehended following the incident.

A police statement, via Goal, stated:

โ€œA serious incident took place outside the Nea Filadelfeia stadium. A young Greek man was stabbed to death and six other injured people are in hospital.โ€

“Dinamo condemns vehemently the recent riots,”

Dinamo Zagreb has also condemned the behavior of the involved supporters on social media, while reminding admirers of the Croatian club not to travel to the Greek capital in accordance with previous agreements.

The statement was made:

โ€œGNK Dinamo strongly condemns the riots that took place last night in Athens, in which, according to the reports of the Greek police and Greek and Croatian media, rioters from Croatia were involved in an incident with fans of the Greek football club AEK.

โ€œSuch events are not in line with the values and ethics we promote as a club and community. We express our deep concern over this incident. Unfortunately, one person lost his life during the riots. GNK Dinamo would like to express its sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.

โ€œOnce again, we remind and invite all Dinamo fans not to travel to the match in Greece, considering that UEFA, in agreement with the police, decided that both matches will be played without visiting fans. GNK Dinamo remains committed to creating an environment in which love for sport is expressed in a positive way, through togetherness, respect and cooperation.โ€
