Vizela fan banned from entering stadiums after attacking referee

A man was banned from entering sports venues for throwing a water bottle towards the fourth referee in a game between Vizela and Arouca, according to an APCVD decision that Lusa had access to today.

The incident took place on matchday 12 of the Portuguese First League, in November, with the 41-year-old suspect identified by the National Republican Guard (GNR) shortly after the infraction, and sanctioned by the Authority for Prevention and Combat to Violence in Sport (APCVD).

“The fan will be prevented from accessing sports venues until the end of the process, after having been notified at the end of November by the GNR of the precautionary measure applied” by the APCVD, reads in the document.

At the end of the process, the offender may also be punished by the APCVD with a fine between 1,000 and 10,000 euros and with the additional sanction of banning access to sports venues for up to two years.

In case of non-compliance with the decreed measure, the supporter incurs the crime of disobedience and may be arrested by the police authorities.

Since January 1, 2022, the APCVD has issued approximately 700 condemnatory decisions, as a result of various infractions reported by the police authorities, which also resulted in the entry into force of about 250 measures banning access to sports venues across the country.
