About this title


These are the crews who think nothing of using tear gas, meat hooks, home-made bombs, and worse to make their point—these gangs of organized hooligans for whom their team is their life can be found globally: in Brazil and Croatia, Argentina and Italy, these soccer fans are everywhere. Meet the fans prepared to go to the furthest extremes to defend their team's honor. Actor Danny Dyer, star of the hit film The Football Factory, took a film crew with him to meet all of these gangs, and this is the full story of what happened when he did. Join him on a journey around the hooligan world in 90 days, visiting nine countries in 12 weeks to meet the nastiest, naughtiest European soccer hooligans on the planet. Shot at, stoned, glassed, and tear gassed, they survived gunfire in Brazil, a riot in Poland, and the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with the foreign teams as it all goes off. Full of spine-chilling encounters, extraordinary characters, and brutal clashes, this book shows that soccer hooliganism is alive and kicking—all over the world.
