The violence broke out between supporters of Clube de Regatas Brasil (CRB) and bitter rivals Centro Sportivo Alagoano (CSA), after CRB beat CSA to take the championship at the Estadio Rei Pele in Maceio, some 1,700 kilometers to the north of Rio de Janeiro.

Two soccer fans in Brazil were left in a serious condition after a massive brawl between rival supporters at the Alagoas State Championship final on Sunday.

Dozens of angry fans from both teams invaded the pitch to attack one another, as well as players and officials. One man was unconscious on the ground as he was kicked by more than 10 fans.

Local website Globoesporte.com quotes the media relations office from Hospital Geral do Estado (HGE) saying that five people were admitted to the hospital, two in a serious condition.

Brazil is notorious for football violence with incidents taking place inside stadia and deaths occurring outside grounds every year, AP reported.
