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.
