The scuffles peaked on Saturday, as Russian and English fans clashed ahead of the match between their national teams and after it.

Earlier in the day, the FUR issued an announcement to the supporters calling them to refrain from using "fires, laser pointers and other prohibited devices at the stadium in order to avoid disciplinary sanctions."
