Players and coaches were forced to lie on the grass to avoid being bitten by insects
In the match of the second division of the championship Ecuador between “Pleven” and “manta” (3:2) held an extraordinary incident.
In the 27th minute of the match the players of both teams and the referee had to lie down on the lawn and not to move because of the invasion of bees. The match was interrupted for a few minutes, but none of the players was injured.
Note that for Latin America is not uncommon for insects to disrupt football matches. So, in 2016 wild insects interrupted the match “river plate” – “Aucas”. In the same year, match of the championship of the state of Paraiba in Brazil, between the “Campiness” and “Tres” was stopped due to bees.
Similar cases occur in Europe. In the summer of 2015 a swarm of bees nearly caused a friendly match in England between the “Blackburn” and “Oldham”. Then the bees was so pleased with the gates that they decided to nest.
