Charlton Athletic: angry voices in Duchatelat out protest

On Saturday the chasing-champions Brighton and Hove Albion took on Charlton Athletic at the Valley. However, it was not only the match of football which was planned.

The Coalition Against Roland Duchatelet (CARD), had been organising and coordinating a mass protesting event to take place on Saturday, against the infamous owner Roland Duchatelet. The intensifying of this protest, comes after Charlton are confirmed as relegated to League One next season.

Pre-game protests

The protests on Saturday against the management and board of Charlton Athletic began at 2PM, with a monumental and special march, which saw the Charlton and Brighton fans marching together to remove the second-most hated owner in English Football.

It is believed that around 5,000 fans, made up of Seagulls and Addicks took part in the march in South East London.


The protests against Duchatelet did not end there, as soon as The Valley filled up, with a relatively large home attendance compared to all season, along with a packed out away-end of Seagulls, chants of “We Want Roland Out” rang around the Valley from all four stands.

The chants continued to echo around the stadium, along with all four stands at The Valley releasing balloons – just before kick-off – coloured black, white, blue and red, to show the Seagulls’ and Addicks’ intentions of ousting Duchatelet from English football.
