Soccer Commissioner Avi Luzon responded to a brawl that broke out at a soccer game in Ramat Gan Friday by cancelling all games scheduled for Saturday.

"I am shocked by the events that took place today at the game," Luzon told Channel 2 Friday night. "Unfortunately, we are seeing that (the number of) violent incidents is rising, and after consulting with [Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat] I decided to halt the schedule of games tomorrow."
