A Hong Kong soccer fan has been arrested after he was said to have threatened on an online forum to set fire to a rival team's jersey and attack its supporters. The 31-year-old supporter of Eastern Long Lions, a team in the Hong Kong Premier League, was arrested for accessing a computer with criminal or dishonest intent on Thursday morning in Jordan. He was detained after being escorted back to his home at Hing Man Estate in Chai Wan, where police picked up two computers and some smartphones. Police said the man was upset after he failed to get a ticket for an Asian Football Confederation Champions League match between Eastern and top-tier mainland team Guangzhou Evergrande, to be held at Mong Kok Stadium next Tuesday. He failed to buy a ticket, and was said to have complained about the sale arrangement on an online forum. He said it was unfair for a guest team to have more tickets allocated for sale than the home team.

Tickets for the match became available in mid-February and sold out within hours. Accessing a computer with criminal or dishonest intent is subject to a maximum penalty of five years in jail.
