An America vs Chivas legends game in California saw into mass violence between the two sets of fans on Saturday afternoon.
According to reports in the local media (Sacramento Bee), more than 100 were involved in the fight.
One man was seriously injured after being stabbed, another suffered major head injuries, and several others needed hospital treatment. “We had four that were injured, and one more reported injury at a different location,” said Sgt. Versteeg.
Police said some of the perpetrators were using baseball bats and golf clubs to attack each other. It took 30 law enforcement officers more than 15 minutes to break up the battle.
Once peace was restored, the game continued as scheduled.
