Illustration for article titled Spanish Soccer Dads Celebrate Fathers Day By Beating Each Other Up

A game between Spanish youth sides Alaró and Collerense was interrupted and later canceled yesterday after a bunch of riled up sports parents got into a big brawl. El Confidencial reports that an Alaró player made a hard tackle, which sparked an argument. The argument then roped in a herd of overeager parents, who ran out onto the field and started throwing down. In a bit of on-the-nose irony, Spain celebrated Father’s Day yesterday.

Earlier this year, Atlético Madrid elected to ban parents from training grounds during weekdays and cited security concerns.
