Police arrest fans after pitch invasion

BY foxsports • November 13, 2011

Greek police have arrested three Iraklis fans from about 300 who invaded the pitch to try to attack the match officials in the club's first home game since being demoted from the first division to the fourth for financial irregularities.

The supporters also fought with riot police after the game against Ayoneri on Sunday was abandoned.

The referee stopped the game in the eighth minute to order a banner attacking the head of Greece's football federation be removed, causing the fans to run onto the field and chase the referee and two linesmen.

Iraklis has played one away game this season, during which its fans scuffled with police outside the stadium.
