The car, which belongs to the owners of the British-themed Devonport pub, The Patriot, was found with shattered glass just after midnight.

The North Shore pub had been showing the semi-final fixture.

Mylam Sloan, who runs the pub with his partner, said they had no trouble with their patrons, with those in attendance split 50-50 between both teams.

The vandalism was a disappointing end to what had been a successful evening, he said.

Police are making inquiries.
