Amsterdam - Police arrested 25 soccer fans in central Amsterdam on Wednesday ahead of the Champions League match between Ajax Amsterdam and Manchester City, a police spokesperson said.

The arrests took place in the early evening in the city's red light district, a popular destination for visiting tourists, famed for its bars and legal brothels.

"Most of them were arrested for public violence," said Marjolein Koek, spokesperson for the police.

"Everything has calmed down now, and most of the supporters have gone to the stadium," she said, adding that police would decide whether to bring charges after further investigation.
