Charming shame in St. Petersburg around the next Zenit match

Date: March 31, 2023 Time: 08:43:07

After the introduction of a mandatory fan ID to attend football, the wind is walking in our stadiums. The players themselves admit that it is very rare for them to listen to all the advice of the coaches from the opposite flank. If before it was not very clear why the coaches were shouting over the din of the stadium, where from 10 to 50 thousand fans, now their shouts, unexpected for everyone, began to make sense. It doesn’t help the game: soccer hasn’t improved. And the TV people admit (no longer behind the scenes, but openly to themselves) that TV ratings are falling, too: no one cares to see an empty stadium.

We thought it was a lie, but no, we watched the broadcast from Sochi the other day and made sure that it was true: it is perfectly clear that the director and cameramen received instructions which they strictly followed: all cameras show the game so that the stands in none of the cases made an impact on a television report.

Isn’t it fun? They came up with an absurd “fan card” – they already realized that they blinded stupidity, but there is not enough will to back down. It is clear that the fan community has shown itself to be a unique force capable of implementing a single policy, regardless of the club’s preferences. And she, the community, has already turned out to be stronger than all the legislative novelties. 207 fans of the match “Torpedo” – “Ural” will not add a couple of zeros to these figures.

Zenit, on the other hand, falls out of favor for the second week in a row: if last weekend it lured football with “free” rolls and an imported parody of cola, this time everything was even more complete. A group of budgetary organizations received documents with the following content: “Dear colleagues! An order has just been received from the Deputy Governor of St. Petersburg Piotrovsky BM that there should be spectators from each district at the football match Zenit – Khimki on 03/12/2023 at 14:00. This is a great opportunity for soccer lovers!! In compliance with the instructions of the management … ”- well, and more detailed instructions on how to form lists, where and when to send them. We will not quote in full – there are screenshots in the editorial office. They have already appeared in many places on the Internet, so this is not a secret.

You always think: well, this can’t be, it’s a lovely embarrassment. An-no. There is still no such fund that will not be dug up for Zenith.

Besides the moral component – it’s not very legal. I have actively discussed the issue here with various lawyers, and all of them, to one degree or another, stand firm on one thing: you cannot give away for free what others have paid for with money. However, the stories, as in St. Petersburg, the subordinate “daughters” were once forced to buy tickets for their employees, and then distribute them, are also well known.

One thing is reassuring: this Wednesday, the officials will not have to try very hard, once again collecting the appearance of a full house at the Gazprom Arena. There is a match for the cup ahead – the notorious “cards” have not yet entered there. Yes, and the Dynamo landing is expected to be a strong one for Krestovsky. Our editor-in-chief is rumored to be going to the game wearing his legendary jersey. Know us!
