Hooliganism is a world wide problem. several
campaigns have been run to try and put a
stop to the amount of hooliganism which
occurs in today’s society, and in football in particular.
A campaign was created to put a stop to Hooliganism in Brazil;
This campaign was created in order to stop the amount of violence which occurs in football. Although many people feel that hooliganism only occurs in the UK, this is not the case. This
campaign was run in order to stop Brazilian fans
from fighting and violating with other fans. This campaign has been
a success. After the campaign was launched an immediate impact was recognised, less people were
causing trouble. There are many teams in Brazil which have a problem with hooliganism. Some
of these teams include;
The above clubs have suffered with hooliganism, fans rioting and causing trouble during and when football
matches are taking place. Causing damage to spectators, other fans and the facilities.
This campaign was created so that violence
and hooligans were stopped. On August 20, 1995, after
the Sao Paulo Juniors Super cup, Palmeiras beat Sao Paulo, on a golden
goal. Fans from the same teams, armed with sticks, stones and pieces of iron, promoted a bloody battle on the Pacaembu Stadium field. It resulted on hundreds
of wounded fans and a death of a sixteen year old

Another campaign was run in order to minimise
which hooligans leave us with. The National Criminal Intelligent Service worked
with the Football Intelligent
organisation in order to stop hooliganism affecting and ruining the game.
The Football Intelligence Campaign in association with The
National Criminal Intelligent Service
The Football Intelligence Section aims to disrupt planned disorder, working
with football intelligence officers in each police force emphasising offender-profiling and analytical assessments for key matches, focusing
on recognising groups and individuals. It is the national
police football information centre, preparing intelligence assessments on each England match, and supporting the
host country's policing operation during away games.
The section was pivotal in shaping the Football Act 2000 which permits police forces
to obtain, from a magistrate, football banning orders
on convicted and suspected hooligans and works in conjunction with the Football Banning Orders Authority, which processes football banning orders
on behalf of the Home Office after they have been issued.
The orders ban hooligans from the national game and require them to surrender their passports at a nominated
police station for a five-day control period during important
During the control period, suspected hooligans seeking to travel may have passports confiscated and be
brought before a magistrate for an 'on complaint'
ban within 24 hours. The orders do not constitute a criminal conviction but are issued in a civil proceeding.
The home office or authorities also holds statistics on football related arrests and banning orders.
