A soccer brawl caused the game to be suspended during the Fijian Soccer Leagues’ season opener at the Bear Creek Park in Surrey.

 

The Masters Division match between rivals Samabula FC and Nadro FC turned ugly following a late tackle on Nadro’s Jiten Singh.

 

The match was five minutes away from regulation time, when things got a little testy. And by “a little testy,” both sides went absolutely bonkers in an epic brawl.

 

Sam Ali says the game was in its final stretch when a bad tackle set the tone for a free for all brawl.

He said a scuffle broke out between the two teams towards the end of the game, after two players got into a shoving match on the field.

Ali said the unruly players from both the sides threw punches.

“It was probably the most surreal opening of the league I have ever been to,” said Ali, who covered the game for Sportsone.

“In no time both sides were all in one massive scrum,” Ali said.

 

Ali says nothing good came out of the season opening.

 

“Security and soccer wise, the league must take appropriate action to avoid similar incidents”. 

Samabula FC was leading 4-0 at the time of abandonment.
