Fan rivalry has gone to a whole new level in this year’s Indian Super League as booing in the stadium has become the habit for most fans. A week ago, a group of NEUFC fans were being subjected to verbal harassment by Chennaiyin FC spectators at the Marina Arena. In another instance, film star and Mumbai City FC co-owner Ranbir Kapoor was booed by the Bengaluru FC fans at the Kantereeva Stadium in Bengaluru. 

Yesterday, though, the rivalry took a whole new low as heated arguments were exchanged at the Balewadi stadium between fans of FC Pune City and Mumbai City FC. A Mumbai City FC fan took to Twitter and claimed that they were attacked by sharp sticks numerous times. 

Mumbai City FC CEO Indranil Das Blah also took to Twitter on the issue and said, “Fans deserve better. We will look into it. On our part, let’s be extra nice to all visiting teams. Let’s not have anyone point fingers at us. Let’s show them the Mumbai way. You guys are the best and we couldn’t have asked for better support. We love you.”

FC Pune City fan page ‘The Orange Army’ said: “The Orange Army is unaware of events that happened outside of our designated stand. Having said that, the Orange Army condemns all actions that result in physical harm to away fans. We are in strong support of separate stands for travelling fans.”
