ASMonaco Bans Belgian Fans Following Paris Attacks

Following the terrorist atrocities in Paris and subsequent threats at European Sports Stadia, the Monaco government has taken the decision to ban Anderlecht fans from entering the principality for the Europa League clash on November 26.

Last Friday, three suicide bombers blew themselves up near the iconic Stade de France, killing one, whilst in a synchronised attack further gunmen attacked bars, restaurants and the Bataclan concert hall, killing 128 other innocent people and leaving over 350 wounded.

A statement issued yesterday read: ‘The Monaco government has made the decision to ban the presence of the Anderlecht fans on its territory, and consequently at the Stade Louis II, on Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015, the date of the game between the two sides in the Europa League.

The Monegasque government also added that the European governing body, UEFA, and owners of Anderlecht had backed the decision.

The tragic events in paris have prompted the Monaco principality to raise its vigilance level across the principality to ensure the safety of its residents.
