The police arrested four of them, aged between 21 and 31, who tried to hide in a bush. They confessed that they participated in a party at the fans’ headquarters during the game and there they made the decision to throw the objects together with the organization’s leadership.

In the report, the president of the organization, Rafael Gonçalves, said he was surprised by the news, regretted what happened and said that the fans had no involvement in the acts committed. According to him, the Blue Mafia only promoted the broadcast of the match at the headquarters and that, among those arrested, there were people who were not part of the fans nor were at the event.
