The Turkish Football Association tried out an innovative punishment for hooliganism this past weekend, allowing only women and children to attend Fenerbahce's league clinching draw against Caykur Rizespor on Sunday.

40,000 women and children under the age of 12 packed Sukru Saracoglu Stadium for the controversial soccer team, who have recently been banned from the Europa League for match fixing, and whose president is likely headed to prison, according to Yahoo Sports.

Fenerbahce has actually been forced to bar adult men from its matches before, staging a similar women-and-children only match in 2011, after their fans stormed the field during an offseason friendly.
