Ticket-sales fans Gun­ner get bul­let

Irish Daily Mirror - - SPORT - BY JOHN CROSS

ARSE­NAL last night promised to ban fans who sold tick­ets to Cologne sup­port­ers. Both clubs are now fac­ing fines af­ter UEFA brought dis­ci­plinary charges fol­low­ing the shock­ing scenes at the Emi­rates on Thurs­day night. Arse­nal es­ti­mate more than 7,000 Cologne fans got in the sta­dium even though the Ger­man club were al­lo­cated 3,000 tick­ets. The Gun­ners now plan to strip any sup­port­ers of mem­ber­ship and ban them if they sold their al­lo­ca­tion. It also comes as Cologne apol­o­gised, af­ter ad­mit­ting some fans “threat­ened, in­sulted, and even at­tacked stew­ards and po­lice of­fi­cers without cause”.
