Crowd erupts in victorious cheers after police search fails to unearth flares

A crowd in Melbourne, Australia, erupts into loud, victorious cheers after a police search for banned flares fails to yield any results.

Melbourne Victory played Adelaide Wednesday night, losing 2-0. According to the filmer, police had also been conducting random metal detector searches with cameras where the game was being shown, and his friend was fined for swearing.

However, one of the police officers seems to be getting into the celebratory vibe, appearing to jump in the air cheering along with the football fans after the search.

The use of flares at matches has been a sore point in Australia in recent years, with Football Federation Australia (FFA) handing various clubs a suspended three-point penalty and $50,000 fine for fans' usage in 2016.
