Bromley's clash with Yeovil is abandoned after 11 minutes as fan tragically dies in stands | The Sun

BROMLEY's game with Yeovil Town was abandoned due to the death of a fan on Saturday.

The National League game was halted by the referee in the 11th minute due to a medical emergency in the crowd.

BBC report that the supporter has since regrettably passed away.

The match – which had an early afternoon kick-off to accommodate any potential England World Cup clash today – had previously paused in the sixth minute to allow a medical team to help with the situation.

With the score at 0-0, Bromley confirmed the cancellation with a statement on Twitter.

It read: "Today's game has been abandoned due to a medical emergency."
