Beitar Jerusalem's first soccer game of the season ended with an arrest on Saturday night after a fight broke out between fans of the opposing sides.

The match against Beersheba ended in a 1-1 tie at Teddy Stadium, and fans got into a scuffle outside the stadium after the game ended.

Police arrested one Beitar fan and one Beersheba fan was lightly injured in his back. The Beitar franchise has been trying to cut down on fan violence, especially after a melee in the Malha mall in March when fans chanted "death to Arabs!" and tried to attack Arab workers.
