Feyenoord asks fans not to travel to avoid violence

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Feyenoord have asked their fans not to travel to France's AS Nancy for their UEFA Cup match later this month because of fears of a repeat of the crowd violence that marred the tie between the two clubs in 2006.

The Dutch club said they would not sell tickets to their fans for the tie on Oct. 23 after the twice UEFA Cup winners were paired with Nancy in the group stage again.

The Rotterdam side were expelled from the 2006/07 competition by UEFA following crowd trouble involving their fans in Nancy in November 2006.

Feyenoord qualified from the group stage but were kicked out by UEFA, allowing Tottenham Hotspur a bye in the first knockout round.

"We don't expect the people who caused the problems in 2006 to travel to France but it is logical that the French authorities are keen to prevent any problems," financial director Onno Jacobs was quoted as saying on the Feyenoord website on Wednesday.

"Every minor incident could lead to exaggerated reactions, with possible serious consequences and we cannot take that risk."

"We think that our fans will understand this decision as the future of Feyenoord is more important than this single match."
