Sections of the Kingston College (KC) supporting crowd at the bleachers area of the National Stadium today bullied a Calabar supporter out of an area that they have gathered in for years.

The chanting supporters who gathered in the bleachers area, adjacent to grandstand, demanded that the woman leave the area.

The woman, who identified herself as Kadian, and her KC-supporting partner who was dressed in purple and white were escorted from the area by Atlas security personnel.

For several minutes the crowd shouted “Leave! Leave!” while one man tried to force the woman to put on a purple and white shirt with the word 'Fortis' printed on it.

Eventually the woman and her companion were escorted to another section of the bleachers area.
