Yesterday in the city Valparaiso, Chile, the Santiago Wanderers were set to take on the Colo Colo. A seemingly exciting game to experience live was actually a set up for a fan-frustrating scenario…See, Colo Colo had already been crowned league champs by virtue of the result of a separate match. The Wanderer fans arrived to the stadium with nothing to root for.
The wildest brawls broke out amongst fans. Getting so hectic that the game itself was called off.

It’s said that only one person was injured in the riot. That’s still one too many. Crazy.
