The police have announced that Sunday's, March 28, incident at the stadium in Trnava - in which seats were set on fire after a football match between Spartak Trnava and Slovan Bratislava - will be investigated as a criminal offence. However, it is unknown for the moment who caused the fire. The damage has been estimated to be €3,000-4,000, the TASR newswire wrote. It was reported that ten firefighters from Trnava had to intervene.
According to the available information, the Slovan fans tore up a banner after the match and burned it, with around one-third of the seats in the southern stand catching fire as a result. In Round 25 of the Slovak premier football league 'Corgoň Liga', Slovan Bratislava beat Spartak Trnava, 3:0.
