Rowdy Newcastle United Fans Invade the Pitch After Sammy Scores (Video)
Soccer fans. There really isn’t anything like them. Whether it’s taking a dead body to a game or a fan attacking a coach mid-match, soccer fans are the nuttiest. What happened on Friday during a friendly between Newcastle United and Darlington just confirms what we already knew.
The match between the teams was interrupted when fans invaded the pitch, causing a raucous. In this video, you can here fans chanting “If Sammy scores, we’re on the pitch.” Sure enough, Sammy Ameobi scored and the fans stuck to their word. Check out the video of the Newcastle United fans invading the pitch:
Newcastle United said the invasion was non-violent, but this video shows fans beating each other up:
So far only three fans have been arrested, but police are looking over the footage to see if more people need to be punished. I’m sure they’ll find plenty more, just like the Vancouver police did with their rioters. Amazingly, the game was resumed and Newcastle United held on for the 2-0 win.
