Serbian Cup final abandoned due to crowd trouble

The Serbian Cup final took a shockingly similar turn of events to that of the Greek Cup as Partizan and Crvena Zvezda Telekom was abandoned with the score at 43-43.

With 4:07 left in the third quarter, both sets of supporters shot flair guns and threw objects onto the court. Players from both Partizan and Red Star quickly retreated to safer ground as the missiles were continuing to be thrown.

After a minute or so of calm, rival fans started fighting in the stands with some of the chaos spilling onto the court as stewards and riot police struggled to contain the ongoing violence.

The game will continue, most likely tomorrow afternoon and there are reports that it will be played behind closed doors.
