A stampede at a crowded stadium in Honduras before the football mast led to the deaths of two people, another 17 were injured, reports Agence France Presse with reference to police.

Police spokesman Lieutenant Luis Barahona, responsible for security at the stadium in the capital, Tegucigalpa, has described the incident as «an avalanche in the stands.»

Speaking about the reasons for the stampede, he said that the stadium was sold too many tickets, therefore the final match of the season came to see more people than the stadium can accommodate.

The Agency reports that the incident occurred before the match-the end of the season between the teams, «Motagua and Honduras Progreso».
