Partizan supporters set rivals’ stadium on fire

The “fiery” rivalry between Serbian clubs Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade is considered by many to be one of the most intense in the world, if not the most. The latest edition of the “Eternal Derby” more than lived up to the billing.

With home side Red Star up 1-0 early in the second half, Partizan fans  began throwing flares on the pitch. OK, pretty standard rivalry etiquette so far. But then, the supporters began lighting several fires in their own cheering section.

Actual fires.

More and more fires started in the away section, and before long the referee had to stop play until smoke cleared the stadium. Fire trucks were brought in to quell the flames, before the match could restart.

Despite all of their fans’ efforts, Partizan still lost to Red Star. And they probably deserved that.

The Welsh club’s won promotion came exactly 53 years to the day since they last won promotion to soccer’s top tier, but a first since the Premier League came into being.

Party in Cardiff tonight!
