Security Alert: Belgrade (Serbia), High Risk of Hooliganism When Soccer Clubs Play on April 7

Location: Belgrade, Serbia

 

Event: Soccer clubs Partizan and Red Star will play on April 7, 2021 at 6:00 PM, at Red Star stadium. This is a high-risk event because of animosity between hooligans affiliated with both teams, and frequent clashes between them in and around the stadium. This match will be played without an audience, but there are indications that fans will gather near the stadium prior to the match. Expect traffic congestion and enhanced police presence in the area and around the city.

 

Actions to Take:

  • Avoid the area near Red Star and Partizan stadiums.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • Keep a low profile.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
