This is the shocking moment a children's football match descended into violence when parents of boys from rival teams started brawling on the touch line.
Several people were left needing hospital treatment when a pitch-side row among dads escalated into a fist fight at a game involving youngsters aged 12 and 13 on the Spanish island of Majorca.
Footage taken by a shocked spectator showed the parents punching and kicking each other - ignoring the anguished screaming of mothers who were horrified at what they were seeing and trying to protect children at the scene.
The game had to be suspended and police are now investigating the violent clash.
Local reports said some of the children were already fighting when the parents waded in.
The mass altercation happened on Sunday at a game between children's football teams Alaro and away side Collerense.
The normally peaceful town of Alaro, an inland village tucked away in the west of the island, is described in holiday brochures as a place with 'rustic, authentic appeal' and a far cry from the resorts along the coast nearby.
Several parents are understood to have invaded the pitch after a bad tackle by one of the players, some to voice protests at the foul and attend to the child that was lying on the grass after being upended and others to try to calm frayed tempers.
Horrified mums could be overheard on the video shouting 'shame on you, shame on you' as the dads starting squaring up to each other by one of the goalmouths while another yelled: 'Get that boy out of here. He's a minor.'
Seconds later the arguing erupted into a full-blown fight after one of the fathers appeared to push another - and was chased down by other fathers before being punched and kicked to the ground as others jumped in to defend him.
Several fathers could be seen bear-hugging others from behind to stop them using their fists to carry on the fighting.
A mother thought to have tried to separate the brawlers ended up injured and lying on the pitch and a child was left wailing on the sidelines.
Local Civil Guard officers were probing the incident yesterday after receiving a string of complaints.
Several people are said to have been treated in hospital for injuries, although none were thought to be serious.
In January two fathers were filmed having an ugly fist fight by the side of the pitch during a game involving youngsters aged 16 to 18 on the island of Gran Canaria.
One was left bloodied and bruised - and nursing an eye injury that required hospital treatment after being subjected to a string of punches before managing to escape.

Thibodeaux confronted Gill on the way towards the bench during the ensuing timeout. When Gill tried to push Thibodeaux away, the 6-foot-5 Thibodeaux appeared to put both of his hands around the neck of Gill before others quickly intervened.
A French rugby union match descended into chaos after an aggressive challenge sparked a mass brawl that involved all 30 players and even saw some home fans attack the away team.
The two teams - Bedarrides and Stade Nicois - compete in Federale 2, the fourth tier of France's rugby pyramid, and were both in the running for promotion going into Sunday's clash.
With tensions running high, a Stade Nicois player threw an opponent to the floor with more force than was necessary, sparking a brawl that would go on for several minutes and see every player get involved.
As chaos ensued, the main bulk of the brawl fell into the main tier and some fans saw fit to get involved. Stade Nicois head coach David Bolgashvili claims his players were subjected to physical abuse from some of the home support.
He told Nice-Matin: 'There was an aggressive tackle by one of our players, but it was fair in the eyes of the referee. The Bedarrides players then started the brawl and we fought like dogs.'
On Bedarrides fans getting involved, Bolgashvili addied: 'There is no safety standard that is respected, there is only one handrail that separates the spectators from the field.
'The gate was open, and spectators ran on to the pitch to strike our players.'
Somehow, the game was able to continue and Bedarrides went on to seal a 26-20 victory, earning five vital points and increasing their chances of promotion.
However, Stade Nicois are hoping to get the result overturned by default after French rugby authorities launched an investigation into the incident.

U.S. Soccer has adopted a new policy requiring all players to stand for the playing of the national anthem.
The move comes after one of the women's team players, Megan Rapinoe, took a knee during the anthem in several matches last fall to protest racial oppression in the country.
"We have an expectation that our players and coaches will stand and honor the flag while the national anthem is played," U.S. Soccer said in response to Rapinoe's actions.
Rapinoe, who was left off the U.S. women's national team roster for the upcoming year, said she was supporting then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest by taking a knee rather than standing.
Kaepernick recently said he would stand for the national anthem for the 2017 NFL season.
Details on any punishment for soccer players who do not stand for the anthem have not been released.
