UEFA has opened a case against the Turkish club “Besiktas” because of a cat running out on the field

Match 1/8 finals of the Champions League football between the Turkish “Besiktas” and the German “Bavaria”, held on March 14, suspended due to the cat. On March 15, UEFA opened the case against Besiktas because of an inefficient organization.

The animal made its way to the stadium at the beginning of the second half. The cat scrambled to the billboard, and then jumped to the lawn, walked along the front line and disappeared into the stands.

Arbitrator Michael Oliver briefly interrupted the match, the game ended with a score of 3: 1 in favor of “Bavaria”.

The appearance of cats in football matches is not uncommon. So, in 2014, an employee of the stadium “Camp Nou” in Barcelona had to take out the black cat himself from the field. In 2015 another cat appeared on the field during the match of Holland, but the game was not suspended. Anfield Stadium in Liverpool also has a black cat that periodically appears on the lawn.
