Violence in stands mars Liga MX match between Veracruz and Tigres

A Liga MX soccer match between Veracruz and Tigres UANL was marred by violence when fans from both sides confronted each other in the stands of Veracruz's Luis 'Pirata' Fuente stadium.

Tigres players on the pitch motioned to their fans to leave the stadium following full time.

A visibly irate club manager Ricardo 'Tuca' Ferretti had to be held by back star player Andre-Pierre Gignac after getting into a shoving and shouting match with a police officer on the pitch.

Fans pelted the field with objects and cups, some which landed and exploded on top of the covered tunnel that leads to the stadium locker rooms. Tigres beat Veracruz 3-0.
