Birmingham City – Leeds United 1985

Although little in the way of promotion or relegation hinged on the result, violence erupted on the terraces. Hooligans from both clubs invaded the pitch. The police tried to restore order on the pitch with horses. In total 145 policemen were injured and 125 fans were arrested. At least 50 fans had to go to hospital. One 15 year old supporter died because part of a stadium wall collapsed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F4RPI_Aa9g
