Fans Riot After Millwall Win

Around 2-300 Swansea City 'fans' caused riots against the police yesterday after the 2-0 win over Millwall.

Bricks, glass, tyres and anything else they could find were being thrown at the police after the game as a few hundred Swansea 'fans' began rioting outside the stadium.

Some onlookers have even mentioned it was happening outside the Riverside pub.

Three policemen suffered head injuries as well as 2 supporters with head and leg injuries were taken to hospital.

Three arrests were made and the police have warned more will be made when they look at CCTV footage.

A spokesman said: 'As a result of the match between Swansea City and Millwall there were sporadic disturbances in the city. Police officers were deployed to deal with the incidents accordingly.

'Three officers suffered minor injuries as a result of spectators using projectiles.

'Three arrests have been made and further arrests will follow.


There was plenty of banter and taunting between the two sets of fans during the game and police were quickly on the scene to seperate them as some began to climb over the netting towards the opposing fans.

This seemed to kick things off a bit during the second half. People have commented that the police handed the situation badly which angered the group of violent supporters.

I agree with every thing trundz2k5 as said. The scenes outside the Liberty Stadium after the Millwall game was a disgrace. The riot was caused by Swansea hooligans (scum) not by Swansea fans. Since our move to the Liberty Stadium, i had thought that we had left those MORONS down the Vetch. These people are not Swansea City supporters, they are RABBLE. Do they not realise the harm they are doing to our City and football Club? The money being used on crowd control of these morons, could be used on team inprovements. I hope that the newspaper pictures and CCTV cameras are able to identify these hooligans, so they can be banned for life, and let the true Swans Supporters do what they do best, Support the Swans. Let us hope that this behaviour does not occure in any future fixture.

They are not fans of Swansea City football Club. They are "FANS" of violence. Hope CCTV will identify them all.
