Hungary supporters clashed with stewards and riot police inside the Stade Velodrome in Marseille before their Euro 2016 match against Iceland. Fans and stewards clashed after some supporters attempted to climb the fence at the recently-refurbished stadium to join another group of Hungary followers.
Riot police were forced to intervene after fans started throwing punches at officers and the situation was eventually calmed down by the authorities. The police used pepper spray to get the disturbance under control as another Euro 2016 match was temporarily overshadowed by off-field controversy.
The incident occurred less than 24 hours after Croatia and the Czech's Republic's game in St Etienne was halted because of crowd disturbance. On that occasion, Croatian fans were seen fighting among themselves, while a number of flares were also thrown on to the pitch, causing the delay.
Additionally, the Turkish Football Federation has been charged with the setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects and field invasion after more crowd trouble during the country's 3-0 loss to Spain in Nice last night (17 June).
Meanwhile, Uefa recently handed the Russia team a "suspended disqualification" from Euro 2016 following the crowd trouble that erupted following their opening game against England. The governing body said Russia will the thrown out of the tournament if any of their fans commit further violence following trouble in the stands of the Stade Velodrome.
