European Soccer Fans Set An Opponent's Stadium On Fire Because Their Team Lost

Sporting lost 1-0 to Benfica this weekend. 

Benfica fans left the Estadio da Luz content with their team’s victory. A group of Sporting fans reacted quite differently. 

Naturally, in response to a tough loss, angry fans set fire to their stadium section. And they didn’t do it half-heartedly.

Firefighters were sent in to stop the blaze from spreading across the stadium.

We always knew football fans were crazy. But this is a next-level type of reaction.

It’s safe to say opposing fans of Sporting will want to practice their stop, drop and roll technique before attending future matches.
