Feyenoord is allowed to take supporters on Thursday with FC Porto in the Europa League. The club has successfully appealed a UEFA sentence and will be supported in Portugal by some 2,000 fans.
The European Football Association had punished Feyenoord because supporters committed themselves at the end of October around the away match against BSC Young Boys. They lit fireworks, destroyed and threw objects.
The original sanction has been converted into a suspended sentence, which means that Feyenoord will still be punished if such an incident takes place within the next 12 months. A fine of 55,000 euros remains.
Feyenoord calls on fans to leave fireworks at home for the trip to Porto. The club does this not only with a view to the conditional sanction, but also because UEFA has already started a new investigation.
On November 28, during the match against Rangers FC in De Kuip, fireworks were also set off. Moreover, UEFA concluded that stairs were blocked, which is against the rules.
FC Porto-Feyenoord starts on Thursday at 9 p.m. Trainer Dick Advocaat's Feyenoord must win in Estádio do Dragão in order to claim the winter.
