36 red cards, Claypole vs Victoriano Arenas, D Metropolitana, Argentina

On 26 February 2011 Victoriano Arenas and Claypole met at the Estadio Rodolfo Vicente Capocasa in the lowest league of the greater Buenos Aires region, Primera D Metropolitana. In the second half the referee Damian Ruino took the extraordinary decision to send off all of the players including substitutes after a mass brawl. In total 36 players were sent off which is a record for Argentine football, if not a world record.
