MOSCOW, September 22 (Itar-Tass) - Police in Moscow detained more than forty football fans at Lokomotiv stadium Sunday after a game in the Russian national championship between the two highly popular Moscow-based clubs - Spartak and CSKA, the press service of the Special Assignments Center of the Moscow police said.
“There were no serious incidents during the game and mass media reports on a major brawl between the fans of the two clubs run counter to reality,” the press service said, adding however that the counting of those who had been detained was still in progress at the time of reporting.
A total of 1,700 policemen were placed at the stadium and in the adjoining area to guard law and order.
Fans of the two clubs have been known for hostility towards each other since the Soviet era.
