There were 36 red cards in a single Paraguayan junior league football match between Teniente Farina and Libertad, after a brawl that scared referees away.
It all started when two players, one from each team, were sent off but refused to leave. It is reported that chaos then took place, leading both teams and players from the bench to clash against each other.
Eventually, the massive brawl scared referee Nestor Guillen and his assistants. Teniente Farina’s club president, Hernan Martinez, was quoted saying by The Sun:
“They [the refs] ran through the tunnel to their dressing room. They were not able to see anything that happened.
“But in the report, to more or less wash their hands of the responsibility, they expelled all 36 players.”
