‘Dark day’ for football, says FIFA president


News Desk :
FIFA, the international governing body of football, has called the deadly stampede at the Kanjuruhan Stadium in Indonesia a 'tragedy beyond comprehension'.
Reacting to the incident, FIFA president Gianni Infantino said it was a 'dark day' for all involved in football. He also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives in the tragedy.
"The football world is in a state of shock following the tragic incidents that have taken place in Indonesia at the end of the match between Arema FC and Persebaya Surabaya at the Kanjuruhan Stadium," FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement.
"This is a dark day for all involved in football and a tragedy beyond comprehension. I extend my deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims who lost their lives following this tragic incident."
"Together with FIFA and the global football community, all our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, those who have been injured, together with the people of the Republic of Indonesia, the Asian Football Confederation, the Indonesian Football Association, and the Indonesian Football League, at this difficult time," he added.
FIFA has also demanded a report from the Indonesian football association PSSI after the deadly stampede. PSSI secretary General Yunus Nusi confirmed that FIFA had communicated with the Indonesian football association and urged them to submit a report after their investigation.
In its safety regulation, FIFA states that tear gas should not be used by police or stewards on supporters during football matches. However, in Indonesia, where football hooliganism often takes the centre stage, heavy-handed policing is a common sight at the stadiums and outside.
