Waasland-Beveren is opposed to the fine of 25,000 euros that the Pro League to the club imposed for incidents involving supporters during the Wase derby in Lokeren on december 16, 2017. The Waaslanders stepped to the Belgian Court of arbitration for Sport (BAS), as confirmed clubwoordvoerder Martijn De Jonghe Tuesday to Belga.
Referee Bram Van Driessche, who pelted with cups and lighters, explained the ‘Wasico’ a ten-minute silence. After the break, threw supporters of Waasland-Beveren in re beer and lighters. This time, it was Lokeren midfielder Julian Michel is the target. Van Driessche had enough and dropped the party temporarily.
Except a fine of 2,500 euros, of the Royal Belgian Football association (belgian football association),, the club received a fine of 25,000 euros from the Pro League. Against the latest sanction is going to Waasland-Beveren in appeal to the BASS.
“Anderlecht got on the same day a fine of 25,000 euros (for flares in Sint-Truiden, ed.). That was for much more serious offences. In our file were but five or six cups on the field thrown. The fine of 25,000 euros is not proportional,” explains Martijn De Jonghe of Waasland-Beveren. “In addition, has the referee the correct procedure for the temporary closure of a match is not completely followed. So he called the captains of both teams together.”
The BASS will bow on Monday, april 16 (16.00) on the issue. On march 16, the arbitration agreement between Waasland-Beveren and the Pro League will be sent to the BAS.
