Exclusive: Blacklisted Fan Bypasses Russia’s World Cup Security System

By Reuters May 25, 2018 MOSCOW — A soccer fan blacklisted by Russian authorities for bad behavior was granted a document allowing him to attend World Cup matches, while several other fans have skirted a stadium ban, Reuters has found. Russia has vowed to crack down on crowd unrest ahead of the World Cup, to be held from June 14 to July 15, and to weed out troublemakers by screening fans. However, documents seen by Reuters show that Pavel Cherkas, a 32-year-old fan who was blacklisted last year for being drunk at a match, applied for and received a World Cup fan ID after the ban had taken effect. Cherkas, who has attended matches despite being banned by the Interior Ministry, showed Reuters his World Cup fan ID, a document that is mandatory to attend matches and proves he has been approved by Russian authorities. After Reuters asked the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media, which oversees the fan ID program, how a blacklisted fan was cleared to attend the World Cup, Cherkas was informed his ID had been revoked, without explanation. The ministry said a fan ID can be canceled to ensure security or public order, or if it Keep Reading

Pranksters sneak into Kendrick Lamar concert disguised as clean-up crew

ByRebecca Atkins Updated: May 17, 2018 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some might call it the perfect crime, while others might say it was just plain stupid. Two local college students disguised as the “clean up crew” snuck into the Kendrick Lamar concert Tuesday night with ease. They documented the whole thing on social media as they dressed up like members of the “clean up crew,” wearing orange vests and toting giant trashcans they got at Wal-Mart. “We are doing the employee parking they said,” said the girl in the video. Then, they were let right in through the employee entrance. The guy and girl then headed to a Porta-Potty to take off their disguises. “Don’t know what to do with this,” said the girl about her uniform. Once they ditched the clothes, they then enjoyed the show, blending in among the sea of paying concertgoers. While some people have commended their actions, not everyone is a fan of what they did. “It’s a form of theft, you’re stealing from the artist, you’re stealing from the venue and it’s unacceptable,” said Kymberlee Boetcher. She works at the Isleta Amphitheater and said it also presents concerns about safety. “After all the incidents, like the Ariana Grande concert and stuff like that, Keep Reading

Bomb Blast at Packed Somalia Soccer Stadium Kills Five Fans

By Associated Press April 12, 2018 MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A bomb exploded at a packed football stadium in southern Somalia and killed five spectators while wounding several others, police said Thursday evening. The Somalia-based, al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group immediately claimed responsibility for the explosion in the port town of Barawe. Witnesses said the bomb had been buried in the sandy stadium and went off during the local-level match. Most of the eight people wounded were in serious condition and were being treated at a local hospital, police Col. Abdirizak Ahmed told The Associated Press. Barawe once was a key al-Shabab stronghold before Somali and African Union forces seized the town and drove out the extremists, who had banned sports activities in areas under their control. Al-Shabab still has a large presence in Lower Shabelle region and has carried out several attacks in the town. The extremist group often targets high-profile areas of Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, and it was blamed for the October truck bombing there that killed 512 people in the country’s deadliest-ever attack. Only a few attacks worldwide since 9/11 have killed more people. A month before the October bombing Mogadishu celebrated its first nighttime football match in Keep Reading

by Sarah Batcha March 2018 Copyright 2018 Digital First MediaAll Rights Reserved The Daily News of Los Angeles The Los Angeles Dodgers are investigating claims Friday that a fan was severely beaten by stadium security on Opening Day. Dodger security and Los Angeles Police Department officers were allegedly seen in a video captured by a witness holding someone down as they took him into custody at Dodger Stadium Thursday.

He said that he wasn’t drunk and that it started when he was watching another fan “getting a hard time from security.” Rodriguez told ABC7 he asked officers what the problem was, and the next thing he knew, he was being escorted out of the stadium. It was unclear what caused his expulsion from the game. “My whole side of my legs are completely bruised from the kneeing that they were doing,” Rodriguez told ABC7. “It’s nothing that I’m making up because they have footage. It will all show what Keep Reading

Police arrest 6 accused of planning stabbing rampage during Berlin Half Marathon

Police arrest 6 accused of planning stabbing rampage during Berlin Half Marathon By Cleve R. Wootson Jr. April 8, 2018 German authorities had been watching the suspected terrorists for weeks. Tipped off by a foreign intelligence agency, they believed at least one of them had a link to Anis Amri, a Tunisian who barreled a truck through a Berlin Christmas market in the last Islamic terrorist attack on German soil, according to the Associated Press. Police were watching one suspect’s movements around the clock. On Sunday police said they arrested the man and five co-conspirators and foiled an alleged plot intended to inflict horror. The arrested men had planned to wade through dense crowds of runners and spectators at the Berlin Half Marathon, using knives to slash at anyone in reach, authorities said. Police have not released the names of the men who have been detained or any information about the charges they face. More than 36,000 people participated in the event, setting an attendance record, according to the BBC. The race was guarded by more than 630 police officers and went off undisturbed. “In the run-up to the Berlin Half Marathon, there were isolated indications that the six detainees, between the ages of 18 and 21, may have Keep Reading

Can Spctator Seating Be Both Steep and Safe

Can Spectator Seating Be Both Steep and Safe? by Matt Rossetti April 2018 The Bell Centre in Montreal is known as one of the NHL’s most intimidating venues for visiting players, mainly due to a large lower bowl and steep upper-bowl seating. In fact, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland stated that from a player’s perspective, this type of design makes it seem like “everybody is on top of you.” In addition to the home-team advantage the design provides, it also gives fans better sightlines to the action and lets them feel more engaged in the event due to such close proximity. This is an increasingly important factor, as in-person attendance for sporting events continues to decline and ownership groups seek new solutions to provide a better live experience. But that proximity carries a potentially steep price. Fan accidents at the 19,000-seat Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., have led to at least four lawsuits resulting from fans tripping and falling in the arena’s steep upper bowl. More commonly, fans attending events at arenas with steep stairs complain of experiencing vertigo. Looking up at seemingly endless rows of seating can make fans feel as though they are falling. These types Keep Reading
