RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian football had another day of unprecedented chaos on Sunday when fans were allowed into the Maracana Stadium midway through the first half after a judge lifted a ban imposed when rival sides could not agree in which end their fans would sit.

The gates were opened around 30 minutes into a Rio state championship final to allow thousands of Vasco da Gama supporters, and a few from rivals Fluminense, into the ground.
