New Soccer Violence Monitor Received Many Complaints

A new internet monitor for violence in amateur soccer has received 140 complaints on the first day. According to one of the founders, Sven Datema said that 9 of the complaints are severe. The initiators of the monitor claim that the Dutch Royal National Soccer Association does not have an appropriate overview of the number of violent incidents, because many complaints are not transmitted to it. The idea for the monitoring site existed for some time. It has now been put into action after the murder of a linesman after a youth game in the town of Almere.
