Lviv: Football fans protest higher rent for “Karpaty” club

Fans of the Lviv Karpaty football club pitched tents in front of city hall and announced an ongoing protest on Monday.
They are demanding that Lviv city hall provide the club with a long-term lease for the stadium where the Karpaty currently play. City hall wants to collect one hundred and twenty five thousand hryvnia in rent every month from the club. The club presumably cannot afford the rent which stands at the equivalent of twenty five thousand dollars every month. The demonstrators say that the club may be forced to play at a stadium in Ivano-Frankivsk. Nine tents were pitched in front of Lviv city hall.
