PARIS (AP) — The soccer game between Nice and Marseille that was abandoned last month because of fan violence has been rescheduled for Oct. 27, the French league said Monday.
Nice was handed a two-point penalty, with one suspended, following the incidents.
The game was abandoned with 15 minutes left after home fans threw projectiles and invaded the field. It will be replayed at a neutral site and without fans. The league said a venue for the game has yet to be found.
During the match, Marseille player Dimitri Payet was hit by a bottle and fell to the ground. He got back up and threw it at home fans, prompting a significant number of Nice supporters to rush the field. Blows were exchanged between players and staff members as security officials and riot police struggled to regain control.
