Brazilian stadium closed after pitch invasion

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Brazil's disciplinary tribunal has closed the stadium of third division club Bahia after a pitch invasion forced a match to be suspended last Saturday.

Dozens of fans ran onto the pitch during the second half of the match at home to Ipatinga, where they attacked the home players and fought with riot police, who replied by firing tear gas.

The match at the Fonte Nova stadium was abandoned in the 63rd minute with Ipatinga leading 2-0.

The fans were apparently furious at Bahia's poor campaign in the eight-team final stage of the tournament, which decides promotion to the second division.

Bahia are considered one of Brazil's biggest clubs and won the first division in 1988. The stadium will remain provisionally closed until the tribunal's final verdict.
