A fire has torn through part of the Hongkou Stadium in Shanghai – home to Super League club Shanghai Shenhua.
The club was in the news recently for the lucrative signing of Carlos Teves and is managed by Gus Poyet. Loan players currently on the roster include Demba Ba and Óscar Romero.
The blaze was reported to have started at around 8:30am with no explanation as to what caused it.
Shocking footage showed the blaze engulfing one end of the ground during the morning rush hour, with part of the roof been burned and the flames escaping through the walls.
Shenhua are scheduled to host Changchun Yatai at Hongkou Stadium in the Super League on Sunday April 16.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
