Athletic Bilbao fans spill onto pitch as fence collapses at Rayo Vallecano’s Vallecas stadium [Video]
- May 3, 2014
Vallecas has quasi-mythical status in Spain for its old-school, rustic feel.
Rayo Vallecano’s ground on the outskirts of Madrid belongs to a bygone age, with its rickety stands and walls in need of a good lick of paint; but that’s the charm of it, you see.
Only, it really is falling apart at the seams.
During last night’s visit of Athletic Bilbao, the fence keeping the Basque fans off the pitch collapsed, and they spilled out onto the playing surface in the celebrations that followed the second goal.
Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured, with only one young man injuring his foot in the fall.
Some serious refurbishments required at Vallecas!
