Swedish Football Association: extra security precautions ahead of match

Published lördag 14 november 2015 kl 16.50

Security has been tightened ahead of the football match between Sweden and Denmark, which is taking place at the Friends Arena in Solna on Saturday at 8:45 PM.

Karl-Erik Nilsson, chair of the association, told Swedish Radio News ahead of the game that they always put a great deal of thought into security ahead of matches, and that in light of the attacks in Paris, there will be even more done in order that spectators feel safe.

He said the association does not go out with details about precisely what the security arrangements are, but that spectators will be searched, which doesn't ordinarily happen.

Nilsson said that "no one can absolutely guarantee anything in this world 2015", but that for his part, he feels extremely safe and secure about going to the game with his family.

The Stockholm police tweeted Saturday evening that their assessment is that it is safe to attend the match. 

There will also be a minute of silence held in honor of the victims of the Paris attacks.
