Legia Warsaw Fans Unveil Massive Anti-UEFA Tifo Ahead of Europa League Match

Legia Warsaw Fans Unveil Massive Anti-UEFA Tifo Ahead of Europa League Match

Legia Warsaw supporters have risked further punishment from UEFA tonight, after they unfurled a banner mocking the organisation before their match against Sheriff Tiraspol.

Legia have been regularly punished by UEFA over the past few years, with charges including fan violence, political banners and slogans criticising the association.

The club’s most recent ‘misdemeanour’ resulted in a €35,000 fine, after fans unveiled a banner showing a Nazi soldier holding a gun to a child’s head, before their Champions League qualifier with Astana FC:

The message behind the banner was to commemorate the Warsaw Uprising – an unsuccessful operation by the Polish army to liberate the city from German occupation during World War II.

UEFA have made it clear they will punish clubs whose fans unveil political statements during games – as they did with Celtic earlier this season.

However, the Legia fans are clearly still reeling as they took a swipe at UEFA with another tifo this evening:

 

Definitely one way of keeping a low profile…
