Police were called to an motorway service station on Boxing Day after hearing reports of fighting.
Officers arrived at the Hilton Park Services to discover Stoke City and Wigan Athletic supporters fighting with each other despite the pair’s sides not even playing each other.
Earlier that day, the Potters lost 2-0 at Birmingham as did Wigan but at West Brom.
There are reports stating that there were some in fancy dress throwing bins at each other’s coaches.

A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police said: “Officers from Staffordshire Police were called to a report of a disorder between football fans at Hilton Park services on the M6 Northbound just before 6.20pm yesterday.
“One coach was damaged in the disorder.”
One Wigan fan who seems to have made it known that he was there said…
