Largest Security In History Planned For Serbia Visit

The Croatian football federation will be taking no chances when Serbia visit Zagreb for a FIFA World Cup qualifier on 22 March. The head of security at the federation says that security presence at the match will be the largest for a sporting event in the country’s history.

“Zagreb police and the Ministry of Internal Affairs will have the last say. Next week we will hold a press conference to outline to the public what will be put in place. We have been working on the plan for the last two months,” said Zoran Crvk from the Croatian football federation.

Not only will there be an enormous security presence at Maksimir stadium, but the city of Zagreb will also be heavily guarded.

The football federations of both Croatia and Serbia have been put on notice by world football’s governing body FIFA. If there is any crowd problems FIFA has already stated that both nations could face a World Cup ban in Brazil.
