A Swedish league match between Malmo FF and Helsingborg was
abandoned after a spectator went on to the field and pushed
Helsingborg goalkeeper Par Hansson on Tuesday.
Moments earlier, a firecracker thrown from the stands went off
next to Hansson, who was kneeling down when the fan approached from
behind and pushed him off balance. The fan was wrestled to the
ground by police.
The referee ordered all players off the field after the
It’s the second Swedish league match abandoned due to crowd
trouble this season. A match between Syrianska and AIK was stopped
when a linesman was hit by a firecracker. Syrianska was awarded a
3-0 default win.
The incident in Malmo happened when Helsingborg went up 1-0
after half an hour.
