Snapshot: PSV Ultras Stage Defiant Protests…Against Having Free Wi-Fi Installed In Their Stadium

By Chris Wright


The more hard-line sections of the PSV Eindhoven support, i.e, the Rood-Witten ultras, staged a defiant protest complete with sweary banners, chants and flares in the stands during Saturday’s 6-1 thrashing of NAC Breda.

The protests weren’t over a lack of investment from the owners or even a surprise hike in ticket prices as you may well expect, but over the club’s egregious decision to go ahead and install free Wi-Fi for fans to use at the Philips Stadion.

Presumably angry at casual fans spending entire games farting around on their phones instead of actually supporting the team, the Rood-Witten displayed several anti-Wi-Fi banners – the most obvious of all being a giant sign with “F*CK WI-FI, SUPPORT THE TEAM” scrawled across it.

Of all the fights to pick!

    I get their point, but it’s kind of ironic that the team belonging to tech-giant Philips is against technical innovation in the stadium.
