Below are some methods that were tried out to stamp out Hooliganism:
- New and more surveillance and monitoring techniques
- Segregation of fans and increased Stewarding
- Restrictions on alcohol before and during games
If alcohol is restricted before and during football matches then the amount of vandilisim and abuse caused by hooligans
will be minimised. Hooliganism does not apply to all individuals who consume alcohol but for those who do it makes there
intentions a whole lot worse.
- Spotter system assisted by the local Police
This is a system that is used throughout the year in the to penglish football leagues. A Police liasion officer is
attatched to a particular club and has the responsibility of identifying and monitoring hooligans, usually travelling to away
games and assisiting the local Police forces with the detection of Hooligans. Identified Hooligans would be banned from
viewing all of their teams games, and before European and international games take place, their passports would be confiscated
so that they wont travel to these games to cause trouble.
Another scheme introduced by local Policing Authorities in the UK and England was known as the Hooligan Hotline.
Whereby supporters who had witnessed hooliganism taking place would call the authorities and the perpetrator would be taken
from the stadium.
