#AceNewsReport – Feb.26: The Championship fixture was held at the Molineux Stadium on Friday evening where Wolverhampton Wanderers were defeated by rivals Birmingham City FC 1-2.
Following Birmingham City’s second goal, Wolves supporters are believed to have thrown bottles, seats, and coins from the Steve Bull and South Bank stands. And a disorder broke out, forcing #police to use force to quell the trouble, when Birmingham City fans clashed with Wolves supporters near to the train station after the match.
Investigation launched following trouble at Wolves v Blues match
During the evening, 13 arrests were made, eight men were believed to be Birmingham City supporters and five were believed to be Wolverhampton Wanderers fans.
Officers have now launched an investigation into the two incidents and are urging anyone who witnessed the disorder or who can identify those involved, to call with information.
Match commander Chief Inspector Nick Rowe, from the force’s Operations Department, said: “The vast majority of supporters were there to enjoy the game and behaved impeccably. “However, a small number of people behaved dreadfully, spoiling the enjoyment for others. A group of people, yet to be identified threw missiles inside the stadium. “After the final whistle, opposing fans clashed near to the train station, police officers issued several warnings but to no avail and were forced to quell the disorder and used appropriate and proportionate force. “We will look to identify those responsible for throwing missiles inside the stadium and those involved in trouble near to the station, and if necessary they will be prosecuted. “We pride ourselves on the excellent working relationships we have with football clubs and fan groups across our region. We will meet with these groups in the near future and review and de-brief the policing of this match. “My officers were faced with a very challenging, yet isolated incident, and officers had to take action to prevent further clashes and other fans getting hurt. If we receive any complaints then this will be reviewed by the West Midlands Police Professional Standards Department in consultation with the IPCC. “While rivals violently clashed, two of my officers were saving the life of an elderly Wolves supporter who had collapsed on a bus with a suspected heart attack.
“If anyone has any information or footage that could help our investigation they are urged to contact us.” Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
