Three men were jailed earlier this week for their part in an outbreak of violent disorder in Manchester city centre, prior to a UEFA Champions League match.
The men were sentenced at Manchester Crown Court for violent disorder:
Jarolslaw Gumula, 37, of no fixed abode was found guilty and was jailed for 30 months.
Karol Daieswicz, 34, of no fixed abode pleaded guilty and was jailed for 22 months.
Marcin Waliczek, 34, of Tower Gardens, Lincolnshire pleaded guilty and was jailed for 20 months.
On 21 October 2015, a number of Seville fans were congregating in Manchester city centre, prior to the Manchester City v Seville UEFA Champions League tie at the Etihad Stadium. The group was then approached by a large group of men who began throwing street furniture and other missiles.
Police attended the incident and the group dispersed before Gumula, Daieswicz and Waliczek were all arrested.
Detective Constable Natalie Qualters said: “I hope the sentence given to these men today will show that there is no place in society for football related violence.
“Whilst we all understand how competitive football rivalries can get, descending into violence is completely unacceptable and anybody who engages in this kind of behaviour will face prosecution”.
