The impasse happened at minute 74 when fans of the ‘banana cyclone’ and the currambero team, jumped from the stands of the Sierra Nevada Stadium to the field to throw chairs and other objects at each other.

The confrontation lasted about 10 minutes, forcing both the central referee to suspend the match and the players to leave the stadium’s grass to protect their integrity.

The balance of this brawl, several injured fans and material damage to the stands of the sports arena in the city of Santa Marta.

Given these facts, the Mayor’s Office of Santa Marta rejected this type of behavior in a sporting event of such magnitude as a match of the Colombian Professional Soccer League.

“The football festival is to be enjoyed in peace,” said a city hall official.

For her part, Virna Johnson, mayor of the capital of Magdalena, repudiated these acts inside the stadium and offered a reward of up to 5 million pesos to identify the vandals who tore chairs from the Sierra Nevada.

This match was 1-1 when the events occurred.
