Nearly 200 gendarmes will be keeping the peace and providing security for the spectators in the stands at the National Arena of Bucharest to watch Astra Giurgiu play Austria Wien in the Europa League group stage at 20:00hrs., EEST, on Thursday.
In a press statement released on Wednesday, the Bucharest Gendarmerie says that the supporters of the Austrian team have 250 tickets, and admission to the stadium starts at 18:30hrs, upon producing a ticket or an invitation.
