CAMPAIGHNS WHICH WERE RUN

 
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;
  • oThe No Violence campaign / Initiative
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;
  • Corinthians
  • Palmeiras
  • Brasileirao 96
  • SAO PAULO
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 teenage boy. 
 
 
OTHER CAMPAIGHNS RUN
 
 
Another campaign was run in order to minimise the affects 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 matches abroad.
 
 
 
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.
