Tiger Fighting, October 16 According to a report by Shanghai Morning News, about 1,400 tickets allocated to the Shanghai Derby against Shenhua on the 18th were robbed by fans of the Shenhua official fan organization within 30 minutes.
A few days ago, the Chinese Football Association stated: Taking into account the epidemic prevention policies of the two places, venue conditions, and fan conditions, the Suzhou and Dalian divisions of the second stage of the Chinese Super League will implement ticketing and open stands plans respectively. Among them, the Suzhou competition area plans to open all competitions, while further expanding the scale of the game, simplifying the ticket purchase process, without submitting nucleic acid test reports; the Dalian competition area plans to open the Dalian Sports Center Stadium and Dalian Jinzhou Stadium two stadiums. The open capacity of each stadium is expanded to 3000 seats.
The derby battle between Shenhua and Shanghai SIPG is undoubtedly the most concerned about the upcoming first round of the second phase of the knockout. Moreover, Shanghai is also very close to Suzhou, which naturally attracts many fans to watch the game. In order to allow more fans to enter the stadium to watch the game, the second round of the derby that was originally scheduled to take place at the Suzhou Sports Center on the 23rd was adjusted to the Suzhou Olympic Sports Center. It is understood that the Football Association initially considered opening about 6000 seats in the Derby on the 18th, but due to various reasons, Shenhua and Shanghai SIPG each received about 1,400 tickets for the game.
Unlike the other three games in the Suzhou Division that are open to individual fans, the Derby is led by the two clubs, and tickets are allocated to the official fan organizations of the two clubs. After Shenhua’s official fan organization issued registration announcements through their respective channels, it was full within half an hour and tickets were robbed. On the 18th, about 1,400 fans of Shenhua will depart from Hongkou Football Stadium, take a bus to Suzhou, and immediately return to Shanghai by bus after the game.
