The interview begins with the group revealing that there are multiple anti-fascist groups present during Lazio’s games, but they struggle to gain recognition and visibility. Furthermore, the dominant Irriducibili – who have been banned from the Biancocelesti’s next Europa League game against Celtic tomorrow due to racist chants against French side Rennes last month – are the main far-right group in the stadium, with the smaller groups struggling to topple the collective.
Furthermore, the report continues, LAF reveal that they have limited visibility due to “continuous threats” from the fascist groups. Finally, LAF detail how the extreme right-wing fan groups are present in the vast majority of Italian stadiums, with some clubs taking harder measures against them than others.
