February 28, 2015 - Šumperk 6 Prostějov 2

February 28, 2015
1 liga (2nd div) playouts
Šumperk 6 Prostějov 2
Attendance - 540

Yesterday was my first Prostějov away game in three years.  In the past I have watched Prostějov in Uničov, Šternberk, Olomouc, Orlová, Přerov, Hodonin, and Valašské Meziříčí.  The game yesterday meant nothing, as both sides were already assured of not being relegated.  The other game in the group had already been cancelled.  Despite this, around 35 Prostějov supporters showed up and they cheered throughout the match. 

The amount of police seemed like overkill.  They met the supporters at the stadium on foot and in police cars.  I suppose this is normal for Prostějov supporters as I remember the same in most away games, but most of the time nothing happens.  Prostějov fans were frog marched to the stadium, searched, and followed back to the train station at the game.  Everyone seemed to be in a good mood, and nothing happened.  Now, they just have to wait 6 months for the next regular season game.
