Mexican soccer federation bans stadium for three games and debars Correcominos assistant coach for fight

The Mexican soccer federation has temporarily forbidden the use of a stadium and suspended an assistant coach six months following violence that erupted during the second-division promotion semifinals.

In a statement on its Web site, the federation said it was banning the Nou Camp de Leon stadium in the northern state of Leon, home of the "Panzas Verdes," for three games and was suspending Correcominos assistant coach Narciso Ramirez for beating up the coach of rival team Dorados, of Culiacan, Sinaloa.

Leon fans angered at their team's loss to Ciudad Juarez on Sunday ran onto the field in search of the players and began to set nets on fire as well as toppling a retention wall.

More than 30 police officers intervened, but four people were injured after the fans began fighting amongst themselves, according to local media reports.

In Saturday's promotion semifinal, the federation said it had determined that Ramirez was responsible for starting the fight with Dorados coach Hugo Enrique Fernandez after Correcominos lost. Fernandez was suspended for six games.

Correcominos players Angel Raul Sosa and Gerardo Alejandro Hernandez, and team doctor Fernando Robles also were suspended for six games.
