SUMMARY REPORT ON THE 6th ROUND OF THE CROATIAN TELECOM FIRST FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Under the framework of the Direct Protection of Fan Violence project, CHC observers monitored the games of the 6th Round of the Croatian Telecom First Football League, and based on direct insight and collected data recorded the following events.
HNK RIJEKA – NK LOKOMOTIVA 2 : 1
The match of 6th Round of the HT First League was played on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Rujevica Stadium in Rijeka, with a turnout of 4500 spectators, of which there were about 500 members of the Armada (HNK Rijeka fan club), while no guest fans were recorded. The cheering was fair for most of the game, except for when the Armada reacted with inappropriate chanting on several occasions after disagreeing with some of the referee’s calls. And so they chanted their usual “CFF faggots, you screwed up football” (15th, 25th, and 71st minute), and shouted “Purger pussies” in the 92nd minute. In the 61st minute, the Armada throw several cups onto the playing field, and ignite a flammable substance that caused a cloud of smoke to hover over the entire stadium. In the 79th minute they light another smoke grenade.
NK OSIJEK – NK INTER 3 : 0
About 2500 spectators gathered at City Garden Stadium in Osijek to watch the game of the 6th Round of the HT First League. The game was played on Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 21:00 hrs, and was accompanied by about 200 members of the Kohorta (NK Osijek fan club). This game also progressed in a sporty and fair atmosphere, without fan outbursts, and so members of the Kohorta deserve to be commended for showing that you can loudly cheer on your team for an entire game, without any outbursts or incidents.
HNK HAJDUK – NK RUDEŠ 4 : 0
The match of the 6th Round of the HT First League was held on Sunday, August 20, 2017, at 19:00 hrs at NK Zagreb Stadium in Zagreb.

In the 25th minute, Torcida displayed a banner with a picture of the recently deceased Torcida member, Ivan Mate Blažević.
In the 28th minute, Torcida shouts “CFF faggots, you screwed up football”, and are joined by Rudeš fans.
In the 29th minute, Torcida chants “Fuck you Mamić”.
In the 50th minute, Rudeš fans retort with “Tovar pussies”, which they repeat in the 56th and 71st minute.
