The opening game of the new season is one that everyone looks forward to.
After a summer of wondering what to do come 3pm on a Saturday, football fan's across the globe will have been relived to see the return of football this weekend - though fans from SV Babelsberg 03 and FC Lokomotive Leipzig had a unique way of showing it.
Ahead of their opening match in the Regionalliga Nordost division, fans from both sides shocked the onlooking players by clashing in the stands.
It's unclear what sparked the violence, but you can clearly see fans running around the perimeter of the pitch in an attempt to reach the opposing supporters, before various punches, objects and whatever else the violent mob can lay their hands on gets thrown.
When order was eventually restored, SV Babelsberg 03 and FC Lokomotive Leipzig played out an uninspiring 1-0 win, with the home side taking the three points thanks to a 26th minute strike from Süleyman Koc.
