Gorica received one of the ‘heaviest’ (financial) penalties in history of 2. SNL: Nova Gorica fans pay more than 2000 euros for fan chaos

Gorica was also very lucky, but at the same time it is true that it received a penalty, which has not been seen many times in the history of the 2. SNL. At least as far as the amount of the bill that the former Slovenian champion from Nova Gorica will have to pay…
Why Gorica is in the grip of Football Association of Slovenia, it is clear. Last weekend, its fans interrupted the second league match 14. round against Tolmin and just before the end of the game, they “walked” on the pitch and made sure that the referee had no choice but to send the players to the dressing rooms early.
Many were convinced that the NHS would even close the stadium in Nova Gorica, at least for a match, but the umbrella organisation did not decide to take such a drastic sanction. But she wrote a really big bill, which Gorica will have to pay.
“Unsportsmanlike and inappropriate behaviour of the fans – repeated lighting of torches, pyrotechnics thrown on the pitch, repeated throwing of bottles on the pitch, trespassing on the pitch, lack of organisation of the match, pre-punishment,” said Boštjan Jeglič, NZS disciplinary judge, and fined Gorica 2050 €.
