Morocco ban Ultras groups after deadly clashes
Moroccan authorities have announced banning all activities of the ultras groups in the city of Casablanca following the “black Saturday” game.
A match between Raja Casablanca and Chabab Al Rif Al Hoceimi on Saturday witnessed the death of two people and the injury of more than 80, as violence erupted after the match between two ultras groups that belong to the Raja.
In response, the authorities of Casablanca ordered the ban of all the ultras groups that work “outside the authorities regulatory framework”.
Morocco’s state news agency revealed that the decision, which was announced in the wake of the disaster, was taken “to ensure the safety of the citizens and their properties and to preserve public order”.
The Moroccan authorities also announced the temporary closure of the Mohammed V Stadium at Casablanca, which hosted the match, starting next Monday to renovate the stadium and reform its infrastructure.
