Football is a very attractive sport for many people around the world. However, each match will also have players making mistakes. Many red cards have been drawn. Which matches are those?

Except that the player receiving the red card will not be present for the remainder of the match. The following will be the football matches with the most red cards in world football history.

Chesterfield vs Plymouth Argyle (YEAR 1997)
In February 1997, a visit to Plymouth Argyle’s Chesterfield pitch got off to a bad start when a visitor was sent off for a two-foot misuse.

Bristol Rovers vs Wigan Athletic (YEAR 1997)
In December 1997, the match between Wigan and Bristol Rovers saw 5 red cards, four of which came in the first half. After a Rovers defender was sent off by referee Kevin Lynch for two cards, a first-half stoppage-time brawl resulted in two other players from the visitors and one Wigan player being sent off. In the second half, Rovers midfielder Josh Low received an additional red card, causing the two teams to end the match with 6 players on the field.
Espanyol vs Barcelona (YEAR 2003)
The record for the most number of red cards in a La Liga match was set in the Catalan derby in December 2003. A total of 6 players were sent off, with 2 direct red cards and 4 red cards after receiving 2 yellow cards. Surprisingly, all card draw situations stem from separate incidents, instead of a mass brawl.
Recreativo Linense vs Saladillo De Algeciras (YEAR 2009)
A match in the Spanish first division in January 2009 turned into a farce, when the referee drew 19 red cards. According to The Guardian, the showdown between Recreativo Linense and Saladillo de Algeciras worsened when a red Recreativo card inspired a huge brawl that resulted in the match being canceled. In the dressing room, the umpire proceeded to expel nine more players from each side.
Sportivo Ameliano vs General Caballero (1993)
The two Paraguay teams, Sportivo Ameliano and General Caballero, entered the 1993 record book, when it became one of the encounters with the most red cards, when 20 red cards were drawn. According to The Guardian, the dismissal of two Sportivo players inspired a 10-minute brawl that resulted in the game being canceled.
Claypole vs Victoriano Arenas (2011)
The world record for red cards in a high-profile match was set in the 2011 match between Claypole and Victoriano Arenas in Argentina. After two players were sent off in the first half, the second half played out with a series of dangerous fights, resulting in a huge brawl involving players, coaches and fans. According to The Independent, referee Damian Rubino drew a red card for each player, and chased 14 more substitutes and coaches. A total of 36 people received red cards.
Teniente Farina vs Libertad (YEAR 2012)
When the match between Teniente Farina and Libertad takes place, with only 5 minutes remaining, referee Nestor Guillen has drawn 2 red cards to chase players from each team.
This was also when the chaos occurred when the two refused to leave the field and started to fight.
In just a few moments, the players became out of control and the pitch became the arena with successive kung-fu performances from the players on the bench of the two teams. Even the members of the coaching staff, instead of trying to interfere with the players, also jumped in to participate in the fight.
After the incident ended, referee Guillen went to the changing rooms of the two teams and drew a red card with a total of 36 members. The match curator decided the best course of action would be to draw red cards for every player from both teams, a total of 36 red cards drawn. This action made the president of Hernan Martinez of Teniente Farina very angry. He said that the referee was not on the field to observe what happened.
