Polish IV Liga match abandoned after pitch invasion

A Polish fifth-tier match between Karpaty Krosno and JKS Jaroslaw was abandoned on Sunday after a pitch invasion by home fans.

Play was stopped in the 75th minute when a group of Karpaty Krosno fans invaded the pitch and ran to the visiting fans’ section, which was surrounded by a high fence, goading their rivals.

As riot police entered the pitch, the troublemakers ran back into the stands in a bid to avoid being caught. However, two Karpaty Krosno fans were detained as they were trying to leave the pitch.

The match was abandoned over fears for player safety.
