The COVID-19 pandemic put a major halt to fans attending live sporting events all over the world. On Tuesday, soccer fans were allowed to return to the stands at Colombia's El Campin Stadium and the return of fans was noteworthy for a different reason.

During a match between Independiente Santa Fe and Atletico Nacional, fans ended up fighting in stands and even stormed the pitch in the process. Fans also began fighting with the police that were attempting to put a stop to the melee.

The Categoria Primera A match was delayed for about an hour as police attempted to restore order at El Campin Stadium.

In the upper deck of the stadium, Independiente Santa Fe fans made their way toward the north end where Nacional fans were sitting. The upper deck scene combined with fans being on the pitch caused the lengthy delay.

Bogota mayor Claudia Lopez Hernandez even took to Twitter and expressed her displeasure at the actions of all of the fans that were involved.

Atletico Nacional ended up recording a 1-0 win over Independiente Santa Fe once play finally resumed.
