Moscow: Anzhi fans will be forced to make an appointment and show identification in order to buy a ticket for their teama’s Europa League football clash with Liverpool next week.
Anzhi play their European games at Lokomotiv Moscow’s ground after UEFA banned their home province from hosting matches due to security concerns.
The matches have attracted hardcore fans from Moscow teams angry at Caucasus-based Anzhi using the stadium, and many taunted Anzhi fans with racist abuse at a game with AZ Alkmaar in September, leading to around 80 arrests.
“You just need to submit an application and buy the ticket for the match with ID,” said Ramazan Gaziev, head of the Wild Division fan group, which will help Anzhi management distribute the tickets.
