Mexican soccer league hits Queretaro with fan ban for brutal brawl
March 9, 2022
Mexican soccer authorities on Tuesday ordered Queretaro to play their home games in an empty stadium for a year after fans went on a bloody rampage in a brawl that injured at least 26 people and made global headlines.
The punishments meted out by Mexico’s top-flight men’s soccer league and the country’s soccer federation will also ban Queretaro fans from attending away games for three years, league president Mikel Arriola told reporters.
Authorities said three people remain in a critical condition after Saturday’s melee during a game pitting Queretaro against visitors Atlas, the reigning Liga MX champions.
