A match in the 1983 u20 World Cup and other qualifiers for and first rounds of tournaments.

Trabzonspor
There were more Turkish than Danish spectators for the second leg of the European Cup match B1903 - Trabzonspor in Copenhagen. Turkish fans from all over Scandanivia had come to see their club. Of the 7,000 spectators were 5,000 Turkish immigrants. They blamed the referee Ericsson for the second goal which they claimed was off-side and a mob of angry Turks attacked him and Ericsson was beaten unconscious with a cudgel. He was also kicked in the head. Rolf "Roffe" Ericsson was out for 30 minutes
