“In general we saw at the Euro Championship that this organisation, its authorities and its board, practically all of them were detained by the law enforcement agencies, we saw what they did at the tribunes during the game, and of course this was not pleasant and it indicates that we, as the Russian Football Union, paid for it.”

SCRIPT: The president of the All-Russian Supporters Association (ARSA) Alexander Shprygin was arrested in Moscow on Saturday (September 24) during the Russian Football Union’s (RFU) conference where Vitaly Mutko was re-elected the organisation’s president.

“The head of the ARSA Alexander Shprygin was detained at the RFU conference in Moscow. A search is taking place at the ARSA office. There will be no further comments at the moment,” the ARSA said on its Twitter feed.

The 39-year-old Shprygin was arrested in the lobby of the Holiday Inn hotel a few minutes before the results of the elections were confirmed.

The delegates at the conference later decided to exclude the ARSA, which was founded in 2007, from the RFU.

Russian media reported that Shprygin was arrested due to his suspected extremist links.

“We believe that they let us down and very seriously. They let down the Russian Football Union, Russian football and partly the country,” said Mutko told reporters after he was re-elected.

“In general we saw at the Euro Championship that this organisation, its authorities and its board, practically all of them were detained by the law enforcement agencies, we saw what they did at the tribunes during the game, and of course this was not pleasant and it indicates that we, as the Russian Football Union, paid for it.”

On June 14, 20 Russian fans, including Shprygin, were detained by police during Euro 2016 for taking part in violent scenes before their team’s group game against England in Marseille, France. Most were deported home to Russia.

After being deported once, Shprygin returned to France for Russia’s final group match against Wales. He was again asked to leave the country.
