All six have been arrested on suspicion of murder and violent disorder while two of the suspects are also accused of drug offences.
The force said three men from Coventry and Nuneaton, aged 19 – 21, who were arrested yesterday, have been questioned and released on police bail.
Earlier this year, 24-year-old Atikou Diallo was jailed for four years for his part in the wider violent disorder which left Mr Glasgow fatally wounded.
Diallo, of no fixed address, was also jailed for 18 months, concurrently, for robbery, after stealing a phone during the fracas.
At the time of Mr Glasgow’s death, his grandfather and Specials singer Staple described it as “heartbreaking”.
Detective Inspector Michelle Allen, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “We are determined to bring Fidel’s killer to justice and I hope our action over the last two days demonstrates this commitment.”
