DM2009040622:SAED:SPORTS:SOCCER:PERSONALITIES:GCP SEP26 1965 – Uniformed Policemen order fans to leave the field during the disturbance. Five hundred rioting spectators yesterday stopped the big soccer game between Orlando Pirates and Moroka Swallows at the Kliptown Ground. The “riot” was sparked off after two players from Pirates and Swallows had swopped punches. More than 500 fans of both teams then swarmed on to the field and the referee was forced to abandon the game 10 minutes before time. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA) soccer riots
