Top 10 Worst Soccer Disasters
2. The Orkney Disaster
The disaster took place in 1991 in South Africa during a soccer match between two football clubs of the country. After a deadly attack by a fan of one of the clubs on another fan, there occurred a massive stampede resulting in the death of 42 people. Although the match was cited to be “friendly”, the fans were certainly not at all friendly leading to the tragic death of so many people.
