Seven people were hospitalized after the attack, which took place during the tournament’s fifth-place match. This is not the first time fans of the two wheelchair basketball teams have brawled; in 2012, police needed tear gas to disperse the wheelchair basketball hooligans.

RollingPlanet reports 50 of the hooligans tried escaping on a bus, but were caught by polizei.
