Soccer Fans Brawl on Street Before New York Derby (Video)

New York Derby brawl

You’d think the New York Derby between the MLS’s New York Red Bulls and New York City FC wouldn’t be a very heated rivalry, seeing as how a) the NYCFC franchise is less than a year old, and thus, probably hasn’t had enough time to build up a rivalry filled with hatred, and b) this is American soccer we’re talking about.

Unfortunately (or fortunately for those who enjoy watching street brawls), you’d be wrong to make such an assumption, as this violent fight between fans of both teams broke out on the New York City streets prior to the latest New York Derby on Sunday—which the Red Bulls won, 2-0.
