Referee Erdem Gökalp was officiating a second league amateur game between kuşpınarspor and kocaderespor in the western province of Denizli when the attack occurred. The match, which Kuşpınarspor was leading 6-1, was suspended after Kocaderespor footballer F.Ö. head-butted Gökalp after the referee had given him a red card. The referee had a broken nose and was taken to Pamukkale University Hospital. The footballer was detained after the incident and was reportedly released pending trial.
