(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — After a heated match on the pitch, emotions spilled over into the stands Wednesday night at the Colombia/Uruguay Copa America semi-final match in Charlotte, North Carolina.

About a dozen Uruguay players went into the stands and had to be removed by security personnel.

“Uruguay players have entered the stands and a fight has broken out between fans and players,” read a post on the Fox Soccer X account, which was retweeted by Fox Sports, which aired the match.
