Ultras Sur protest outside Bernabeu

Radical Real Madrid fan group Ultras Sur protested outside Gate 28 of the Santiago Bernabeu before last night’s game with Celta Vigo.

Around 200 members convened at what was their entrance until they were banned from the Bernabeu at the start of November, when 500 of the group had their season tickets rescinded and refunded following an altercation outside the ground before a game against Real Sociedad.

Monday’s match with Luis Enrique’s side marked the opening of the ‘Grada Joven de Animacion’, a singing section for young supporters that has been created at the expense of the Ultras, whom the club had expected to turn up and therefore organised a heavy police presence.

The Ultras directed chants against Los Blancos’ President Florentino Perez and the fans who would be taking their place inside the stadium, although no major incidents were reported.

The Grada Joven has a capacity for 853 fans and is made up of existing season ticket holders belonging to established supporters' clubs.
