In footage captured by French media outlet Le Parisien at the beginning of the month, here we see some shockingly graphic scenes from a Parisian provincial amateur game between Ivry-sur-Siene and Val de Fontenay, during which a mass brawl broke out midway through the second half.
What started as little more than boisterous posturing and silly cock-frottage quickly escalated into a warzone, as hundreds of fans charged at each other like rival news crews, wielding a frightening arsenal of weapons that included knives, pickaxes, iron pipes, teargas spray and baseball bats.
According to La Parisien, several of the chumps involved have since been arrested with the above footage used as supporting evidence and, while it’s yet to be made official by the relevant authorities, it’s widely assumed that both clubs will be ejected from their league, with stadium bans also being mooted as an optional punishment.
