Over 13,000 children won't be able to play soccer matches this weekend, due to 'constant abuse' towards referees recently.

 

Match officials in the Dublin region are withdrawing their services from several underage leagues.

 

The FAI says any abuse directed at refs won't be tolerated, and will be punished.

 

Fine Gael's spokesman for sport - former Mayo footballer Alan Dillon - is also condemning the abuse.
