Arsenal supporters left 'unsafe' as Cologne fans storm Emirates Stadium and cause hour delay

Cologne fans kicked barriers down amid chaos around the Emirates Stadium that delayed Arsenal’s Europa League group game for an hour before the scheduled 8.05pm kick-off â€" with fears that the 20,000 German fans who had travelled to London would try to storm turnstiles.

Arsene Wenger said after the game that he expected Uefa to investigate what led to the huge numbers of ticketless German fans delaying the game, although the early indications were that the governing body would not charge the home club.

The game finally kicked off at 9.05pm with Cologne’s away designation in the Clock End at the southern side of the stadium packed and sizeable groups of the Bundesliga club’s fans all over the ground. The delay was decided upon by Arsenal, the Metropolitan police and Uefa because the huge numbers of German fans outside the stadium had caused a s afety problem and home fans were unable to gain access to the stadium.

The estimate was that there were 20,000 Cologne fans in London for the game and only 2,900 tickets allocated for the travelling supporters, as per Uefa regulations. During the day a large crowd of Cologne fans marched through Soho and then into Oxford Street which they brought to a halt. The Met Police said that there was “no significant disorder”.
