Slavia Praha supporters in attendance at tonight’s Europa League fixture at Stadio Olimpico will not be able to display their latest choreography.

In an official statement released by the 4,000 travelling Czech fans, Italian authorities decided to ban their choreography due to the wording of it.

The choreography was supposed to contain the phrase “Ave Slavia” which Italian police interpreted as a denigratory remark toward Roman Emperor Julius Ceasar.

Roma ultras communicated via their official social media channels that they are against this decision and fully support Slavia Praha supporters.
