Rotterdam Mayor, Ahmed Aboutaleb, urges Feyenoord fans who managed to buy tickets online for the game in the ArenA, Wednesday, to stay home.

Feyenoord will play the Cup game against Ajax, Wednesday, in the ArenA. Feyenoord fans are not allowed to the game, but somehow hundreds of fans managed to buy tickets online this past Wednesday.

Police from both the Amsterdam and Rotterdam corps will perform thorough checks at the ArenA, Wednesday evening. 'We will be ready. Those who are caught may be disappointed. But those who get by run the risk of ending up in the wrong section. If they applaud at the wrong time, they may find themselves in trouble,' said Aboutaleb, who is worried innocent people may get hurt.

'It is not worth the trouble. I'm not often moralistic, but in this case I would say: 'don't go. Stay home in Rotterdam and watch the game on TV,'' said the Rotterdam mayor.
