At 18:09, Stjernen Hockey's general manager Anders Ossel told NRK that the hall would be completely empty, and that the rest of the match would be played in front of empty stands.
– Now it's relatively quiet, Åsle adds.
The match between Stjernen and Vålerenga is expected to start again virtually. At 18:20.
The police came out with ten units, and announced at around 17:40 that they had controlled the mood. Work to send fans away to Oslo was underway.
– Police Operations Director Ronnie Samuelsen said earlier this afternoon that fighting will not start again until we consider it safe.
I started to take a break
The dispute is said to have started at the break after the first half of the match with the score at 1-1. The police district wrote on X/Twitter that fireworks were set off inside the hall, leading to clashes between fans.
– The message to the police initially was that Valerenga supporters might have started it, says Samuelsen.
– But whether it is true or not, we have not received confirmation. We must return to that.
Samuelsen adds that so far no arrests have been reported. But law enforcement heard that some damage had been done to the cars, and according to Fredrikstad country One of the hall's guards was sent to the emergency room for a medical examination with a cut above his eye.
