Sao Paulo: Another wave of fan violence hit Brazil over the weekend, with seats destroyed at a World Cup stadium in Fortaleza and dozens of supporters detained after clashes in Sao Paulo.
World Cup organizers on Monday said that more than 80 seats were destroyed at the Arena Castelao on Sunday by Fortaleza fans upset with the team missing out on promotion to the second division. A day earlier, more than 30 seats were damaged by fans of second-division club Ceara following a disappointing draw at the venue. The stadium will host six matches in next year's World Cup.
Police also confronted fan groups inside two other stadiums, including where Brazilian league leader Cruzeiro played on Sunday.
