Fans run riot as River Plate sink to second tier

River Plate fans reacted to the first relegation in their club’s 110-year history with a violent rampage that put 25 police officers in hospital.

It’s almost as unthinkable as Barcelona playing in the Blue Square Premier but the most successful club in Argentina has slipped out of the top flight.

Riots compound River Plate's relegation misery


(CNN) -- One of South America's most famous football clubs, River Plate, was relegated from Argentina's top division Sunday for the first time in its 110-year history, sparking riots among supporters.

The relegation play-off against Belgrano of Cordoba had to be abandoned in the final minute of the match in the Argentine capital, as police fought back a pitch invasion by furious River fans.
