“(Atltico) requires the support of this Instituto de Segurança Pública do Estado do Rio de Janeiro – ISP to protect the safety and physical integrity of its fans and its technical committee, since there are numerous threats from red-black fans on the networks social media, inciting violence and indicating that the Atletico fans will be received with great violence on the day of the event”, said the club, in the note.

“For the above, considering the public threats from Torcida Jovem Fla and other red-black fans, Clube Atltico Mineiro asks that this institute, together with the MPRJ, the Military and Civil Police and Flamengo (in the condition of the host of the match ), reinforce the security of the match to be held on 07/13/2022, to preserve public safety, the safety and physical integrity of its fans and its technical committee, as well as the public and private heritage”, he added.
