Italian soccer fans gang beat players on field during game

- March 24th, 2014


You know a fight is out of hand when a fan gets onto the field and attacks a player with a plastic lawn chair.

And that’s exactly what transpired at an amateur soccer match between Giugliano and Volla in Naples, Italy on Monday.

Dozens of supporters for the home team Giugliano rushed the pitch and started attacking a Volla player.

That then evolved into a major brouhaha that saw some serious kicks and beatdowns, including a guy thinking it’s a good idea to smash a plastic chair on a player. After the chair breaks, the man continues his assault by using one of the broken legs.

The most confusing part of this whole chaotic scene is the response (or lack thereof) by the police in attendance.

A couple officers slowly walked up to the brawl but didn’t look too interested in getting in the mix.

I guess this is nothing new for the Naples police force?

Three people have been arrested so far following the incident.
