The Argentina Football Association (AFA) has banned away fans from all first division matches for the rest of the year in an attempt to deal with the violence that has plagued the league this season.
The decision came two days after the Independiente-Racing Club clash became the latest game to be halted by crowd trouble.
“This is one of most viable decisions which could be taken at this moment,” AFA president Julio Grondona said.
“The decision has been taken and there’s no turning back,” said Gustavo Lugones, a government official.
Argentine football is facing a crisis after a series of incidents.
Sunday’s match at Independiente was called off by referee Horacio Elizondo in the 64th minute as Racing fans in the away section clashed with riot police, who used rubber bullets and tear gas.
It was the third match to be called off because of crowd trouble since the season kicked-off in August.
River coach Daniel Passarella called for the championship to be abandoned after his side lost to Estudiantes at the weekend.
“This championship is a disgrace,” he said. “I said one month ago that the championship was not serious and time will prove me right. We lost the championship in the boardroom.”
