Police investigating a large-scale disorder in Plymouth have issued photos of five men they would like to identify in connection with the incident.
It happened at The Parade, on the Barbican, at around 2pm on Saturday 11 September – before Plymouth Argyle played Sheffield Wednesday at Home Park.
Officers want to trace all of the men pictured, who are believed to be from the South Yorkshire area, as they may be able to help with their enquiries.
The incident involved two groups of men; one who had been walking along a cobbled road and another who had exited a pub on the north side of The Parade.
It was reported that, within moments on encountering each other, they began shouting and hurling abuse.
Around 14 or 15 men were then said to engage in a mass fight in which chairs, bar stools and glasses were thrown.
The melee lasted no more than a minute and saw a number of nearby patrons displaced from their seats through fear of being harmed.
Officers on routine duties in the area were able to break up the violence shortly afterwards.
No arrests were made at the time and an investigation continues into the incident.
Anyone who can identify the men pictured, or who witnessed the disorder and has not already come forward, is urged to contact police.
