Wanderers unapologetic for cracking down after fans light flares

The Western Sydney Wanderers are cracking down on anti-social behaviour by shutting down the active support area after fans lit flares during Sunday’s Sydney derby.

Wanderers chief executive John Tsatsimas tells Ben Fordham it was a shame they had to come down hard after the unfortunate actions of a few unruly fans in the Red and Black Bloc (RBB).

Two flares were lit in the first half in the Wanderers end at Allianz Stadium.

Mr Tsatsimas announced today the active support bay would be shut for their home game against the Perth Glory on March 4.

“There are a couple of things you just can’t do and these are not negotiable,” he says.

“We maintained our position and it’s a shame the activities of one or two have compromised the rest who have been outstanding.

“There are a lot of good people in that active support area. Unfortunately, there is a broader responsibility there.”
