Massive brawl breaks out in French women’s second-division match
A French women’s second-division match went viral for all the wrong reasons on Sunday.
With FC Rouen leading Bordeaux, 3-2, after 67 minutes, a skirmish in Rouen’s defensive half ignited a wild brawl as two players engaged in fisticuffs, prompting the referee to call a halt to the game. Take a look:
Yikes! No holding back!
In no time, teammates and staff of the respective teams rushed over to separate the two, but seemingly to no avail.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a women’s second-tier match being broadcasted by any television outlet, let alone the French Football Federation (FFF). Not the best advertisement for women’s football, to say the least.

Bagarre entre Sumo et la Numéro 6 de Rouen. Carton Rouge de chaque côté. Et un dirigeant expulsé de chaque côté. #FCRFCGB
