Football video: Security guards beat-up fan, forget thousands of fellow supporters are watching

Posted by - September 10, 2008 - Football videos, South America

Pitch invasions at the wrong time can be mildly irritating. As long as they are posing no threat to the players, the people involved are at worst idiots with a bit too much drink in them. So when this fan made it onto the pitch what he needed was carting out of the stadium and dealt with through the courts if necessary. What the situation did not require was a televised police beating. Unsurprisingly, the fans watching one of their own taking this beating didn´t take it too well… If anyone knows where this match was taking place let us know, but we´ll hedge our bets and save it in the South America category!

Thanks to Mof Gimmers for the spot. Check out his groovy music blog Electric Roulette when you get a chance.

    This was back in the summer of 2004 when Benfica played some Swiss team in the pre-season. It was in Switzerland and the people invading the pitch are Portuguese immigrants. You can actually see Benfica and FC Porto fans together kicking the ass of those security guards! It’s lovely how violence seems to get even the bitterest of fans together.

    You cant condone violence on the pitch of any sort, but how stupid were the security to have a go in front of a full house. Just asking for a reaction.
    It just goes to show how good most british policing is. Theres no substitute for good training.
