Mass brawl breaks out during Lokomotiv Plovdiv v CSKA Sofia match

A Bulgarian league match between Lokomotiv Plovdiv and CSKA Sofia was halted for around 20 minutes on Sunday after a massive brawl broke out between rival fans.

Trouble erupted four minutes before the end of the first half when Lokomotiv and CSKA hooligans invaded the running track surrounding the pitch and attacked each other. There were also several members of Spartak Moscow’s hooligan firm called Banda Tuka [Tuk’s gang] who fought on the side of Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

The situation was brought under control when riot police intervened.

11 people were detained, including two from Russia, according to local media.
