The passionate cheering, chants, chants and choreography of the North Curve can give wings to our team, excite and enthuse the hearts of the fans.
We understood this, once more, last Thursday, when the ambience of the Cornèr Arena against Fribourg multiplied the energy of Luca Gianinazzi's boys, propelling them toward a playoff bid.
However, flashlights, smoke bombs and other pyrotechnic means are not part of this world and are prohibited by law because they are dangerous to health.
National League informedHockey Club Lugano that after the third incident in which fans bianconera ignited pyrotechnic means inside a facility, in addition to the usual fines, they decided to enforce the strict regulations in force.
Starting tomorrow in Geneva and until further notice, at away games only, HCL fans will not be allowed to bring flags, banners, drums, megaphones and any other cheering materials to the rink. Choreography will also be prohibited.
The club is in close contact with organized supporters to make them aware of this decision and to find the best solutions so that the players bianconeri can continue to have the important support of their supporters away from home.
In the event of new infractions, the regulations of National League would provide for a further tightening of penalties up to and including the closure of the guest sector.
