Sunday’s game was abandoned after 18 minutes

Granada’s La Liga home game against Athletic Bilbao was abandoned after a fan died in the stands at the Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium.

Sunday’s game was stopped after 18 minutes as Athletic led 1-0 thanks to an early goal from Inaki Williams.

Players from both teams left the pitch 20 minutes later and fans were also asked to leave the stadium.

La Liga then confirmed that the game had been postponed and would be replayed at a later date.

Granada said in a statement that the game had been “suspended indefinitely following the death of a club season ticket holder” and expressed its condolences to the fan’s “family and friends, as well as the entire Granada family.”

Athletic goalkeeper Unai Simon received applause from Granada fans after he helped inform officials in the stands of the incident.
