After going 6-0 down against Mamelodi Sundowns in the 80th minute of their game at Loftus Versfeld today, Orlando Pirates fans decided it was time to stop the match.
Pirates fans invaded the pitch, pushing over and damaging barriers and camera equipment on their way to the field.
The game was halted, with many Pirates fans leaving the stadium once the pitch invasions started.
Police had to be called into the stadium, after which the fans were driven back. The game resumed, with Sundowns taking it 6-0.
