While many European clubs have been producing baners to highlight their support for the plight of refugees, supporters of Polish outfit, Lech Poznan, boycotted Thursday night’s Europa League match against Belenenses in protest at Uefa’s decision to donate €1 from each ticket sold to the cause of refugees.
The game was played in front of a small crowd of around 3,000 at the Inea Stadium, where the club’s average attendance last season was 20,054. A banner reading “Stop Islamization” was hung at one of the entrances.
The boycott was revealed by one of the team’s ultras societies last week. A flag at a previous home game had read “This is obvious and simple for us, we do not want refugees in Poland”.
