A fight broke out in a bathroom on the north side of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, before the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Santa Clara police told ABC 7 that two male victims were taken to the hospital and two men were arrested for felony assault. Police said it is the second time since the stadium opened in July that there has been a reported assault at the facility.

It is also the second time in three weeks that fans wearing 49ers attire have gotten into a fight that was captured on camera.

During this incident, a fan wearing a Frank Gore shirt punched a man wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey, knocking the man to the ground. The fan in the Gore shirt and a fan in an Aldon Smith jersey then landed several punches on a fan in a NaVorro Bowman jersey.
