What is the highest score ever recorded in a single game of professional soccer (football)?

The highest score ever recorded in a single game of professional soccer (football) is believed to be 149-0. This game was played between Stade Olympique de L’emyrne and AS Adema on October 31, 2002, in Madagascar.

AS Adema scored all 149 goals as their opponents refused to play after a controversial decision by the referee in a previous game. The Stade Olympique de L’emyrne team deliberately scored own goals and kicked the ball out of bounds to protest against the decision.

This scoreline remains controversial and is not officially recognized by FIFA as a world record due to the unprecedented circumstances of the game. However, it is still widely reported as the highest scoreline in professional soccer history.

It is worth noting that high-scoring games are rare in professional soccer as teams are typically evenly matched and strive for defensive stability. The highest-scoring game in international soccer, recognized by FIFA, is a 31-0 victory by Australia over American Samoa in 2001.

As for club soccer, one of the highest-scoring games was in 2007 when Esperance Sportive de Tunis beat Stade Gabesien 12-0 in a Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1 match.
