Match Stopped As Riot Erupts At Råsunda

Published tisdag 19 oktober 2004 kl 10.47

Last night’s derby match in football between relegation threatened AIK and Hammarby at the Råsunda Stadium turned into a riot and was stopped for an hour when the home supporters of AIK tried to invade the pitch.

The trouble flared when Hammarby took the lead twenty minutes into the second half. Riot police using water canons were used to stop a group of supporters from breaking through the perimeter fence.

Earlier before the game, a policeman was taken to hospital after being hit on the head by a bottle thrown from a group of supporters in nearby Sundyberg. 40 arrests were made.

The game itself, finished 1-all after the re-start. The Swedish football Federation will meet to decide whether to dock the club points, meaning certain relegation, or force AIK to play their final home match behind closed doors.
