Stockholm Derby Mared By Brawling Fans (Video)

Yesterday we provided you with footage of a line-brawl between two East Coast Hockey League teams.  T0day we take you across the Atlantic Ocean to Sweden, where it was the fans, not the players, doing the brawling Wednesday night.

Things got intense between fans and security officials during the Swedish Elite League’s Stockholm Derby as the two did battle for several minutes, causing the game between AIK and Djurgarden to be delayed for 20 minutes.  The mayhem escalated to the point where riot police were forced to intervene, using batons and pepper spray to subdue the rowdy hooligans.

By the time the game had ended, the crowd was quite bare, with only a few fans remaining in the Globe Arena to watch Djurgarden win this game by a score of 3-1.  Here is a look at the battle that took place in the stands.
