Hundreds of soccer fans rioted at Corregidora Stadium during a Mexican football match between Queretaro and Atlas on Saturday.
The violence was like NOTHING ever recorded at a soccer match.
In fact, this was some of the worst violence ever recorded at any sporting event.
A soccer match in Mexico was called after massive fights broke out in the stands. Current reports are of 18 people dead.
A few hours ago rival soccer teams in Mexico fought in the stands and later on the field, 17 people were reported dead. Teams should refuse to play here forever. pic.twitter.com/TffU3RB6UK

Last night it was reported that at least 22 were severely injured — But it was obvious from the footage that several fans appeared dead after brutal beatings were caught on video.
At least 22 people were injured, including 2 critically, when fans brawled during a soccer game in central Mexico.
The match between host Queretaro and Atlas from Guadalajara was suspended in the 62nd minute when multiple fights broke out in the stands.https://t.co/Irnu7g5geV

(WARNING – this is one of the most graphic videos of violence showing the madness at the event.)
Fans were knocked unconscious, de-pantsed and kicked repeatedly in the head.

People were knocked unconscious.
Shocking what happened in a soccer match in Querétaro, Mexico, 17 deaths, and no security, and to think that they will organize the 2026 World Cup, a tragedy and a shame… The World Cup should not be held in Mexico…. #LigaMX #Queretaro #Breakingnews #Mexico pic.twitter.com/rlr9MBU0He
