Argentina, San Luis. 12.05.2019
Regional Amateur Federal Tournament.
The match between Sporting Victoria de San Luis vs. Peñarol de San Juan had to be suspended, 15 minutes before the end, after the visiting players were attacked by the opposing team and their supporters. Penarol players had to escape from the stadium for fear of their own lives. Several team players and coaching staff were injured.
Mariano Perona – leader of Peñarol, said: “what has happened should never happen,” he added: “Local police and club, did not secure the tournament properly and did not protect us from the savage attack. But, thank God, all we can already go back to our homes.”
