Turkish soccer fans set own stadium ablaze after team is relegated

Safe to say some soccer fans take their fandom to more extreme lengths than others.

Fans of Turkish squad Eskisehirspor proved as much Sunday when their team fell 2-1 to rival Medipol Basaksehir. The game was a significant one and the result amounted to Eskisehirspor being relegated to a lower division in their final game of the season.

But the hometown fans in Eskişehir, Turkey, went to the extreme, setting fires in the stands and on the field. Mind you, this was at their home Eskisehir Ataturk Stadium.

According to reports, the team is set to move into a new stadium following the year but if all goes as planned, they won’t be playing in the Super Lig when they debut there.
