'Non-Danish' sounding fans penalised

FC Copenhagen have taken the unusual step of preventing fans with non-Danish sounding names from buying tickets to their upcoming Champions League matches, according to a report.

Copenhagen fans will welcome Galatasaray, Juventus and Real Madrid to Parken Stadium this season.

The Danish side have been drawn against Galatasaray, Juventus and Real Madrid in Group B of the Champions League, but supporters, according to newspaper Ekstrabladet, have been angered by a new club policy.

It is claimed that, for "security reasons", fans with non-Danish sounding names who bought three-match packages for their home games have seen the tickets cancelled.

"Safety is always our main concern when it comes to events at Parken (stadium). Therefore we make every effort to ensure that fans of our guests only have access to the away section," FC Copenhagen club secretary Daniel Rommedahl is quoted as saying by Reuters.

"If a dialogue with the customer shows otherwise, the purchase will be approved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but it's a necessary action in relation to the matches and UEFA's rules and Parken's security procedures."
