    Before the game started

    I am not sure if my sentence is correct. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Before the game started, there was a commotion in the stands the cause of which was unknown.

    Add a comma after "stands" and it's OK.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In case the OP does not understand why a comma is needed, see http://grammar-monster.com/glossary/...ve_clauses.htm
