Four men were arrested after a fight broke out near a pub before a football match.
Violence flared outside the Irwell Inn, Burnley Road, Bacup, at about 2.40pm on Saturday just before Bacup Borough's game against FC United of Manchester.
The road was closed for a short while as police restored order.
Four men, all FC United supporters, were arrested for public order offences, police said.
They were later given £80 fixed penalty notices.
