Cologne fans bought Arsenal tickets from club members and exchange sites

  • Craigslist, Viagogo, Ticketbis and independent touts used to get tickets
  • Arsenal members tickets sent to hotel for collection by Cologne fans

Thousands of Cologne supporters bought tickets for the Europa League game against Arsenal from club members and ticketing websites, fuelling chaotic scenes at the Emirates stadium.

Resale of football tickets is illegal in the UK, but Cologne fans told The Guardian they were able to secure seats in the home end via Craigslist, independent ticket touts and websites such as Viagogo and Ticketbis, owned by StubHub.

‘For Cologne fans it was the biggest night of our lives. Thanks for having us’

I was one of 20,000 Cologne fans in London on Thursday and although we condemn the minority who misbehaved everyone has to understand just how much this match meant to us

Dear England,

Thanks for having us. It was an absolute dream for us to see Cologne play in London. Let’s be clear from the outset: the fact some idiotic fans tried to force their way into the stadium was a terrible idea that pretty much all Cologne fans strongly condemn. But please, the behaviour of 50-odd Cologne fans should not cloud the picture of the other 20,000, who had a peaceful party. I will try to tell you why things happened the way they happened on Thursday.

Cologne accuse Arsenal and police of being ill-prepared to manage crowd

• Kick-off on Thursday was delayed as away fans clashed with stewards
• ‘In our view, the security concept and communication seemed inadequate’

Cologne have accused Arsenal and the Met Police of being ill prepared to manage crowds before their Europa League tie at the Emirates which was blighted by pre-match disturbances.

The German club apologised to Arsenal on behalf of what they called inexcusable behaviour from a small number of their fans. But they also claimed a lack of forward planning contributed to chaotic scenes before the match which saw away supporters engaged in skirmishes with stewards.
