According to information from the Schweizerische Depeschenagentur (SDA), the City of Bern has sent a bill to HC Lugano for the damage their supporters have done in one of Bern's buses last Saturday.


The damage amounts to a total of CHF 7,500.-. Additionally, a man got hurt within the Postfinance Arena due to fireworks. As Bern's security director Reto Nause confirms to the SDA, HC Lugano has been asked in a letter to pay for the damages and to outline how they are going to look after their fans in upcoming road games in Bern.

If HC Lugano will not accept Bern's demand, the City of Bern threatens to introduce measures from the Hooligan Concordat. According to this concordat, the away team can be obliged to organise the trip of their fans in the case of so-called "high-risk games". Fans who do not travel with the club's means of transportation will be denied access to the arena. (tme)
