The acts of violence in the stands during the Shipyard Classic last Wednesday, which already led to a sanction against Barcelona Sporting Club by the LigaPro Disciplinary Committee, have been a reason for rejection by national football entities and have found scope in the Prosecutor’s Office of Ecuador, which is investigating the events at the Monumental Banco Pichincha stadium.

There was a full house on the stage of the canaries to receive Emelec, in play pending date 11 (first round) of the LigaPro Serie A, and the Clásico left more than the tie at 1 between the two Guayaquil clubs. In the stands, non-sports situations were experienced that were not overlooked in the recording of video cameras, such as the lighting of flares by visiting fans –prohibited in national football since 2013– and the altercations carried out by local supporters.
Regarding the events, the organization of the domestic championship spoke on social networks on Thursday: “The Ecuadorian Professional Soccer League rejects any act of violence that stains sport. We are available to the authorities to work together, also with the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) and thus eradicate these events.
LigaPro Disciplinary Committee sanctions Barcelona for incidents in the stands during Clásico
Along the same lines as the LigaPro, the FEF expressed itself on its website: “The Ecuadorian Football Federation rejects and condemns the acts of violence that are public knowledge and took place last night (Wednesday) during the match between Barcelona Sporting Club and the Club Sport Emelec for phase 1 of the LigaPro Serie A 2022″.
In the governing body of Ecuadorian football, in addition, they said “attentive to the identification and punishment of all offenders involved in these acts of violence.”
Flares, visiting fans and altercations in the local bar, another face of the Shipyard Classic
On Thursday, the LigaPro Disciplinary Committee sanctioned Barcelona with the ban from playing its next home game with the public, that is, behind closed doors, after the events in the stands during the Clásico. The Canaries were also fined $10,000 in total for various infractions.
“We will know how to accept, within the framework of due process, the sanctions imposed by sports organizations, which will obviously represent economic losses that directly threaten the financial and administrative management of our institution,” Barcelona reported.
Prosecutor opens investigation
The State Attorney General’s Office opened an investigation into the violent incidents during Wednesday’s Clásico.
“The events left several people injured, including women and children,” said the institution, which will also investigate “an alleged sexual abuse against a journalist, who would have been assaulted outside the sports arena.” (D)
