About 20 so-called supporters associated with Vålerenga football club have razed Paddy’s pub in Stortingsgata in Oslo, where two Rosenborg supporters stayed.
The football supporters threw chairs and tables while breaking glass and windows inside the Oslo pub. The destruction lasted for less than a minute and no people were injured.
“It was actually a police patrol that came across the incident at 23.04.Then the perpetrators had just left the place. The message has gone out to all patrols, and we’ll see if we can find them,” said operations manager, Tor Grøttum, of Oslo Police District to NTB news.
The incident happened due to two Rosenborg supporters staying at Paddy’s pub.The police do not have an overview of the presence of other guests.
The perpetrators are Vålerenga supporters and members of the Isko Boys supporters group, which the police mention as ‘risiko’ supporters.Several of the group’s members have previously been banned from football stadiums around the country.
“They are not regular supporters who go to matches and have fun.Instead, they seek out supporters from other teams and make trouble.For the football clubs, it’s obviously tedious because it’s bad for their reputation’’ explained Grøttum.
Vålerenga meets Rosenborg at Ullevaal Stadium at 20.00 on Sunday evening.
