This is the third time the V-League organizing board imposed these penalties on Hai Phong Cement club.
The club’s fans set off flares several times at V-League 2010, resulting in a 20 million dong fine against the team during a match against Dong Tam and another 80 million dong fine in a match against Ninh Binh. They were also banned from playing in their home stadium for one match.
After that, Hai Phong fans continued setting off flares and causing disturbances at Hanoi’s Hang Day stadium in matches against Hanoi T&T and Hoa Phat. However, the two teams were fined, not the fans, because they “couldn’t control guest fans in their home stadium.”
In the match between Hai Phong Cement and Khanh Hoa at the Lach Tray Stadium in Hai Phong last weekend, Hai Phong’s fans again set off flares. The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) decided to levy a 25 million dong fine on Hai Phong Cement. The club will have to play the next match against Nam Dinh in a neutral stadium.
This club’s fans have earned a bad reputation for causing disturbances. Two weeks ago two Hai Phong hooligans were sentenced to 12-14 months in jail for causing similar disturbances.
