Slovenia, Maribor 22.02.2020
A few hours before the derby match a fight broke out in the city center between hooligans of NK Maribor (Viole Maribor) and Olimpija Ljubljana (Green Dragons Ljubljana). About 100 hooligans took part in the fight.
Uptade: A short relation from Green Dragons Ljubljana, after the fight with Viole Maribor:
60 lads from Green Dragons Ljubljana came 8 hours before the match in Maribor. After 1 hour walk around the town (we visited also their place, unfortunately no one was there), we clashed with Viole Maribor. Soon after they threw everything what they had, we started winning the fight and forced them to run away. They had some guests (St. Gallen), we also had (Olimpia Warsaw and Young Boys) about 10 people in total. Many of them (Viole) went to hospital, at our side 1 injury. A big minus for them, because they had a lot of dangerous weapons, but on the other side ,we understand it a little, because their group was a bit smaller like ours. We made for them a perfect gift for their 30th Anniversary
Viole Maribor info.
They were in town, only 30 minutes. We had to react quickly before the police arrived. It was a fight: 35 vs. 60 (lastet about 4-5 minutes). They also used weapons, they had iron rods, chairs from nearby pubs, flares, stones and everything. And only 1 our lad in the hospital, but nothing serious.
