Kosovo Police stopped Red Star Belgrade football team from entering the country on Wednesday, saying it had no permission to play a match with a local team in the Serb-dominated north.

Kosovo authorities on Wednesday banned a football match from taking place in the disputed Serb-dominated north of the country between Serbian club Red Star and a local team, Trepca, which it does not recognise, after calling it a “serious provocation”.

“We will not allow it [the match] because in that case all sporting principles, respective statutes and the state’s territorial integrity would be violated,” the Secretary General of the Kosovo Football Federation, FFK, Eroll Salihu, told BIRN.
