Banik Ostrava fans storm pitch during Opava match

Wednesday’s Czech second division match between Banik Ostrava and Opava was suspended after the home side’s fans invaded the pitch.

Play was stopped in the 17th minute when a large group of Banik fans, including their GKS Katowice friends, invaded the pitch and ran towards the visitors’ end.

Stadium security and police swiftly stepped in and prevented the pitch invaders from getting to their Opava rivals.

After a seven-minute delay, the game was restarted.
