Cascade model to be introduced despite rejection from league and clubs

The cantonal justice and police directors (KKJPD) are implementing the cascade model against fan violence for the next season despite the rejection of the Swiss Football League (SFL) and its clubs. They made the announcement to the media on Thursday.

However, according to the working group of the licensing authorities, the common goal of all those involved is that the model should not have to be used at all. However, in the event that dialog and other preventative measures do not prevent riots, the authorities must be able to fall back on instruments that allow them to react in a proportionate manner.

The SFL and the football clubs unanimously rejected the model. They consider it to be ineffective, one-sided and disproportionate in practice.

The cascade model consists of various stages, with certain incidents automatically triggering predefined measures.
