Crazy Soccer Fans Storm The Field And Chaos Erupts Into All Out Brawl During Halftime
Retired players from Mexican soccer clubs Pumas and Club América squared off in an exhibition this past weekend in SoCal, but the highlight of the game had nothing to do with skill on the pitch. At halftime, fans of both teams rushed the field and chaos erupted into an all out brawl in Santa Ana…Fans were throwing punches and kicks all over the place as more and more crazy hooligans came pouring out of the stands and onto the field:
According to Deadspin, there were only 5 people arrested in this crazy brawl that took security and police a long time to break up. The fight apparently broke out when some Club América fans crossed the field to stir shit up with Pumas fans. Once the initial fight broke out everything spilled over into the field.
As far as random ass sports fights go, this one is pretty spectacular. After watching it a few times I find myself questioning sports fights in general. Why is it that Soccer and the NFL tend to yield the most fan fights in the stands? Hockey has fighting actually incorporated into the sport. Why aren’t there more hockey fans out there throwing down? It seems like it should be the most violent fan sport, by nature, but you rarely see any videos of hockey fan fights and I’ve never experienced any hostility at all at a game…Thoughts?
