"It would be drønærgerligt, if it happened. But we can't play fanpoliti and determine how exactly people should go to football, so now we must wait and see what happens," says fanformanden.

In Wednesday's statement from the club they also made it clear that they took a clear distance to the use of pyrotechnics, like they explained what it could get of the consequences.

'at the same time, there are also severe penalties for the club as a result of the breach of the law on the use of pyrotechnics. It can potentially lead to empty grandstands for our matches in the near future.'

B. T. has on Friday been in contact with FC Copenhagen's head of communications, Jes Mortensen. In a text message he writes:

"We have made our position clear, and it is not changed. We have also made it clear that it is a complicated and big task to solve, so it's going to take time."
