A Swiss first division football match between Grasshopper and Zurich was called off on Sunday because of fighting between rival fans.

The game was stopped a first time after fans threw firecrackers but restarted a few minutes later. But the referee decided to end the game after 77 minutes because of continued unrest with hosts Grasshopper leading 2-1.

Both sides are struggling in the league.

Swiss football's disciplinary commission will decide whether the result stands or if the game will be replayed.
