The Ankara Police Department announced on Wednesday that only Diyarbakır-born Amedspor fans would be permitted to watch a Turkey Cup match to be played between Gençlerbirliği and Amedspor from the Amedspor stands.
Following a call by Gençlerbirliği fans on Twitter for additional security for the match, the Ankara police said in a statement that fans whose IDs are not registered in Diyarbakır would not be allowed to watch the game from the section allocated to Amedspor fans.
The Ankara Police Department also increased security measures for the match due to past incidents that occurred between Ankara teams and Amedspor.
The game between Gençlerbirliği and Amedspor was postponed due to the death of Amedspor captain Şehmus Özer in a car accident on Dec. 21.
In April of this year, five administrators of Amedspor were violently attacked by the administrators and fans of Ankaragücü following their game in Ankara.
The incident took place after Amedspor won the game 2-1. Ankaragücü fans also attacked the bus carrying Amedspor players after the match.
