Fans of Egypt’s Al-Masry soccer team interrupted a match between the rival Al Ahly team and caused the worst sporting riot the country has ever seen. Seventy-four people were killed and at least 1,000 were injured in the melee. In the aftermath, the Port Said Stadium, the scene of the ugly riot, will remained closed for the next three years and the Al-Masry team was suspended from the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) until the 2013-2014 season.
