Police arrest 10 for attack on English supporter in Sofia

Sofia police arrested 10 men for attacking an English football supporter at about midnight in central Sofia on September 1, the Interior Ministry said.

According to the police, a row had erupted on Vitosha Boulevard, although the reason for it was not immediately clear. Police officers on the scene found Bulgarian nationals attacking an English supporter, who was later taken to hospital and allowed to leave after a medical check-up.

The ministry said that the police was investigating the case, but in the meantime have detained 10 Bulgarians in preventive 24-hour arrest, including four minors. Two of those 10 had criminal records.

In a separate incident, police arrested a ticket tout near Vassil Levski national stadium, who was targeting English fans, but it was not immediately clear how many visiting supporters had purchased tickets from the man.

UK Football Fan Severely Beaten in Sofia

A fan of the British national football team has been severely beaten in downtown Sofia overnight.

A group of four minors have attacked the Brit around 1 am at the intersection of the main Vitosha boulevard and the Parchevich street. The man suffered head trauma and injuries on his body.

The perpetrators were arrested later by police from the 1st police precinct where they are held for 24 hours before facing a judge to be tried under the Football Hooliganism Act.

The UK and Bulgarian national teams are playing Friday at the National Vasil Levski Stadium in Sofia in a Euro 2012 qualifier game. The match starts at 9:15 pm. The UK team arrived in Sofia Thursday.

About 900 policemen will monitor public order during the game.

An estimated 3 000 British fans are expected to attend the game.

The faceoff has caused traffic changes and streets closures.

Parking is banned from 8 am Thursday until midnight Friday near the Stadium; parking and standing are banned from 8 am Friday until midnight on Gurko street between Vasil Levski and Evlogi and Hristo Georgievi boulevards and on the bridge in front of the stadium.

The Sofia Police Directorate will monitor traffic and if need arises they can ban all vehicles, in exception of those of the public transportation, from the area near the stadium.

Palmeiras fan group banned from local stadiums after altercation with police in Brazil - 01/09/2011

Source : Associated Press

The Sao Paulo state soccer federation has banned a Palmeiras fan group from local stadiums after a confrontation with police ended with two supporters being shot.

The federation says in a statement Thursday that the ban for the Mancha Alviverde group will last until authorities finish their investigation and punish those responsible for the confrontation.

One of the fans shot before Sunday’s match against Corinthians in Presidente Prudente remains in serious condition.

The ban comes after police admitted that the shots may have come from officers trying to contain the altercation. The case remains under investigation.

Eight-time champion Palmeiras is the fourth most popular club in Brazil, behind Flamengo, Corinthians and Sao Paulo.

Switzerland: Hooliganism ball kicked to clubs and cantons - 02/09/2011

Source : Swissinfo.ch

Security at sporting events isn’t a federal matter, says Sport Minister Ueli Maurer, who has told cantons and clubs to come up with concrete solutions to violence.

But while the former want to crack down and make life hard for trouble-makers, the latter are wary of implementing proposals such as combined “fan tickets” – which cover train fare and entrance to the stadium – and obligatory licences to hold matches.

Speaking in Bern at the tenth and final round table on violence in sport, Maurer said security was a cantonal matter and over the coming months and years priority would be given to decentralised actions.

Maurer welcomed the close collaboration between the various parties, but acknowledged that differences of opinion remained.

“I think the biggest challenge is getting the clubs, the leagues and the police to agree on the same strategy,” Claudius Schäfer, director of legal affairs at the Swiss Football League (SFL), told swissinfo.ch.

“Sometimes I have the feeling that this cooperation could be better, however this is not within the competence of the league.”

Maurer said the round table had highlighted countless guidelines. He mentioned model agreements between clubs and authorities, rules for the purchasing and consumption of alcohol in stadiums (currently legal in Switzerland) and methods of monitoring fans.

“Useless”
But the cantons, Swiss Railways and the Federal Police Office found the results of the round table unsatisfactory.

Solutions had yet to be found, for example, for the issue of herding fans to and from matches and identifying hooligans.

Marc Furrer, president of the Swiss Ice Hockey Association, criticised various suggestions made by the cantons, describing as “not practicable” the proposal that visiting fans at high-risk games be forced to travel in fan buses.

He said a Davos supporter who lived in Zurich couldn’t be forced to travel to Davos and then back to Zurich.

“On a political level it’s always a problem. Politicians see an incident then they come with general rules and say these rules should be valid from Davos to Geneva and Basel to Lugano,” he told swissinfo.ch.

“It doesn’t work like that. Some of these regulations they want to implement are just useless – they don’t bring anything and harm the sport and we are against these kinds of rules.”

He admitted, however, that in general dialogue with the cantons was “all right” and they had no problem with the police.

Match licence
Thomas Grimm, president of the Swiss Football League, criticised the attempt to force football and ice hockey clubs to obtain a licence for matches in the top league.

This, he said, would require sports clubs to hammer out with the authorities basic conditions for every match.

Noncompliance would result in the cancellation of the match, which would then be forfeited. Grimm said this would make the normal running of a match impossible.

Roger Schneeberger, general-secretary of the Conference of Cantonal Justice and Police Directors, challenged this, pointing out that licence requirements were common abroad and that in any case organisers today already established conditions with the police.

Persistent problem
Despite a raft of anti-hooligan measures, violence in and around Swiss football and hockey stadiums remains a persistent problem.

Whereas other European leagues appear to have nipped the problem in the bud a long time ago, there have been serious incidents at regular intervals in Switzerland, involving many of the top clubs. And this despite tougher measures introduced by the Swiss Football League in 2006. The 2009 season was plagued by a number of violent clashes.

A major sticking point is who pays for security. Cities and cantons are unhappy about having to shell out up to SFr250,000 ($320,000) in policing costs for a high-risk match.

Almost 30,000 police officers were on anti-hooligan duty at Switzerland’s top football and ice hockey games last season. Fan-control measures reportedly cost a record SFr27.5 million, plus SFr3 million for post-match damage to trains.

“In Germany for a normal Bundesliga match there are 1,000-1,500 police around the stadium,” Schäfer said.

“Here in Switzerland if it’s a high risk game there are between 150 and 200 and that’s sometimes not enough.”

Progress?
Even Valais-born Fifa President Sepp Blatter said in 2009 that Switzerland had a hooligan problem and was “five to ten years” behind the rest of Europe in tackling it.

Schäfer denied this was still the case, “but of course we still have this problem with so-called fans who go to a football match not to watch the match but to cause trouble”.

Marc Furrer said in ice hockey this is “certainly not the case”.

“We had less violence last season than the season before. I think we’re on the right track and we also have much less violence than football,” he said.

“I’m not saying we don’t have a problem, but we’re aware of it and we’re tackling it.”

Football Association to lodge a complaint with Uefa after Ashley Young subjected to racist abuse in Sofia - 03/09/2011

Source : Telegraph.co.uk

The Football Association last night lodged an official complaint to Uefa and the Bulgarian FA after England’s impressive 3-0 victory here in Sofia was marred by racist chanting.

The Bulgarian coach Lothar Matthaus immediately issued an apology on behalf of his employers saying it was “pitiful” that the chanting had occurred. “In my capacity as manager I can say it is pitiful for such things to happen,” the German said: “And because of that I would like to apologise on behalf of the Bulgarian Football Association.”
Theo Walcott, one of the players subjected to the abuse, said: “I was aware of it but I will let the FA deal with that...it was very clear” while the FA added: “We have raised the matter with the Bulgarian FA and the Uefa match delegate.”
England captain John Terry said he was shocked by what he heard. “You don’t expect that at all,” he said. Terry added that he hoped the incident would not overshadow what was a good performance from a rejuvenated England.
Nevertheless the FA, which did not want to comment further, will push hard for sanctions given the abuse aimed at Walcott and, in particular, Ashley Young.
There were also accusations that Bulgarian supporters were making Nazi salutes during the match in front of the 3,000 travelling England supporters.

Black England soccer stars suffer Nazi salutes and vile monkey noises from racist Bulgarian fans

FA chiefs complain to UEFA over Young and Walcott abuse

Football Association chiefs have made an official complaint after black England soccer players were subjected to vile racist abuse from Bulgarian fans.
Manchester United's Ashley Young and Arsenal's Theo Walcott were taunted with monkey noises and Nazi salutes during England's victory in Sofia last night.
The chants could be heard when Young was substituted and Walcott was targeted when he missed a chance late in the Euro qualifier.

FA officials reported the behaviour to the UEFA match delegate after the game which saw home supporters unfurl a banner which said 'F*** UEFA.

England's two-goal match winner Wayne Rooney slammed the Bulgarian fans' behaviour. He said: 'We could hear it on the pitch. It has been going on for years.and it's not right.
'It needs to stop and hopefully something will be done about it.'
Walcott told Mail Sport: 'It was very clear. I ignored it. I think the FA will deal with that and I don't want to comment too much. The result was the important thing.'

England captain John Terry had not heard the abuse during the game, but told Sky TV: 'You don't expect that at all. It was a great spectacle for everyone to watch let's not let that spoil it.'

Bulgaria boss Lothar Matthaus, a former German World Cup winner, apologised for the conduct of the minority of his team's fans.
Like Terry before him, he admitted to being 'not very informed' about what had occurred, having been focused on the match.
But he added: 'It is very pitiful for such things to happen. Because of that I would like to apologise on behalf of the Bulgarian Football Federation.'
England have encountered racism problems on their travels before. Seven years ago Shaun Wright-Phillips and Ashley Cole were targeted by home spectators during a friendly played in Madrid.
A spokesman for the FA confirmed: 'We've raised it with the Bulgarian FA and the UEFA delegate after the match. That's all we're saying about it.'

Man killed in clashes between rival Greek fans - 05/09/2011

Source : Reuters

A 21-year-old man has died from stab wounds following clashes between rival Greek soccer supporters in Crete, police said on Monday.

Yiannis Roussakis was stabbed in the early hours of Monday in the town of Heraklion during fighting between gangs linked to local clubs OFI Crete of the Super League and Irodotos, from the fourth tier, police said.

Police made six arrests after 30 men clashed near the Pankritio Stadium using crowbars, knives, stones and other weapons.

The news comes as a further blow to authorities' efforts to stamp out violence in Greek football, coming a week after two men were seriously injured in fierce clashes between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos fans in Athens.

The Super League issued a statement saying it "strongly condemns all manifestations of violence on the pretext of football and would like to offer heartfelt condolences to the victim's family".

Police probe as Manchester United fans 'try to stir trouble' at City’s Champions League match in Italy - 05/09/2011

Source : Menmedia.co.uk

A group of Manchester United fans have been blasted for trying to incite violence at City’s Champions League clash with Napoli.

Some Reds supporters have posed as Blues fans on internet message boards connected to the Italian club, and posted insults in a bid to stoke tensions ahead of the tie.

Greater Manchester Police say they are aware of the situation and will investigate – while an MP has branded the actions ‘despicable’.

The M.E.N. understands officers will raise it with their Italian counterparts at a Uefa meeting in Vienna later this week. The internet campaign appears to have been hatched on a fans’ message board which is not a club website.

One poster wrote: “So are we all invading the Napoli forums pretending to be ‘bitters’ and winding them up?” Fans were directed to various forums and given instructions on how to register. Taunts were then posted on the website.

Some of the messages were tongue-in-cheek but there are fears they will upset Italian fans.

Genuine City supporters have since posted on the boards to explain that those hurling the insults were Reds. Blackley and Broughton MP Graham Stringer, who is a United fan, said: “There’s enough trouble in football without people trying to wind it up.

“In a sense, it’s despicable because people could get seriously hurt as a result of this,” said Mr Stringer.

“Any rivalry between United and City should remain on the pitch and not in Italy.” The Blues will make their Champions League debut against Napoli at the Etihad Stadium on September 14, with the return clash on November 22.

Poland: Finger pointed at football hooligans after bloody weekend in Krakow - 03/09/2011

Source : Thenews.pl

Authorities fear another outbreak of football-related violence over the weekend in the southern city of Krakow will cause further concern at UEFA ahead of next year's Euro 2012 championships.

This weekend's violence was centred on the outlying district of Biezanow, where on Friday night, a bloody clash broke out involving knives and machetes.
The brawl took place by a street that divides two warring housing estates. One block supports Krakow's Wisla football team, the other Cracovia.
A group of about ten men armed with machetes and baseball bats were involved in the incident. The assailants were aged between 18 and 28.
Five people were arrested on the spot after police were called to the scene.
A 28-year-old man was immediately taken to hospital with stab wounds, and the following morning a sixth man was detained.
Malopolska police were hesitant to declare that football was the main reason for the clash. However, spokesperson for the force Katarzyna Cislo insinuated to the Gazeta Wyborcza daily that this may well have been the cause.
“Please show me a young man living in Biezanow who is not a football fan,” she said.
There were further outbreaks of violence in the district over the weekend, including a second fight on Saturday evening. Further arrests have been made.
Concern over hooliganism in Poland is running high owing to the country's impending co-hosting of the Euro 2012 tournament with Ukraine.
Hooliganism both at home and abroad has set Uefa's alarm bells ringing. In March this year, over sixty Poles were detained following a national match in Lithuania. Meanwhile there has been a series of high profile incidents in Poland.
Nevertheless, in spite of media alarm Polish fans behaved themselves during Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland.

Wales fan dies following crowd trouble outside Wembley

• Trouble flares prior to qualifier between England and Wales
• Metropolitan police confirm murder investigation is under way


Police have launched a murder investigation after a Wales supporter aged 44 died when trouble flared before the Euro 2012 qualifier with England at Wembley.

The man was taken to hospital with serious head injuries, after having suffered a heart attack. Emergency services were called to the concourse outside the stadium at about 7.20pm on Tuesday night. The man was pronounced dead at 8.50pm.

Six people have been arrested in connection with the incident. A Metropolitan police spokesman said the victim and the suspects were Wales fans.

A London ambulance service spokesman said: "I can confirm that LAS got a call at 7.20pm to reports of an assault outside Wembley Stadium. Staff treated a 44-year-old man who had suffered a cardiac arrest. Extensive efforts were made to resuscitate the patient and he was taken to hospital."

Staff on standby at the international match, which England won 1-0, were on the scene within three minutes, the spokesman said. The victim was taken to a north London hospital in an ambulance belonging to a private medical contractor employed by Wembley. He was pronounced dead at 8.50pm. A postmortem examination will be arranged in due course.

Police believe they have identified the victim but await formal confirmation that all his next of kin have been informed. Officers from the Met's homicide and serious crime command are now investigating his death.

Cardiff City released a statement to confirm that the deceased was a supporter of the club. "Late on Tuesday night, details reached us concerning a tragedy where a Wales and Cardiff City supporter died at the match between England and Wales," the statement read. "Out of respect for the family of the supporter, the sensitivity of the situation and until full details and circumstances are ascertained, no statements will be made until deemed fit by proper channels."

The death of fans in violence in or outside grounds is a comparatively rare phenomenon. In 2010, a football fan from Darwen, Lancashire died after appearing to head a bin thrown by a fan during Stoke City's match with Blackburn Rovers at the Britannia Stadium.

An Aston Villa steward died in 2003 during a running battle between more than 100 rival hooligans after a game between Villa and Queens Park Rangers.

1985 was said to be when football reached its lowest point in England. At a Second Division game, Leeds and Birmingham fans clashed before, during and after the match, ripping up St Andrews and killing a 14-year-old-year old fan when a wall collapsed on top of him.

On 24 August 1974, 17-year-old Blackpool fan, Kevin Olsson, was stabbed to death at the back of the Spion Kop, Bloomfield Road at Blackpool's home match with Bolton Wanderers. In 2009, Blackpool supporters raised money for a memorial plaque for Olsson. In August of that year, on the 35th anniversary of his death, the plaque was unveiled beside the club shop.

At least 130 injured as football fans, police clash in Egypt

At least 130 people were injured in clashes that erupted Tuesday night between football fans and police in Cairo, Egypt's state-owned news agency said, citing officials from the ministry of health.
MENA quoted a health ministry statement saying 71 injured people, including many said to be unstable condition, were transferred to the nearby Police Hospital.
The clashes erupted after an Egypt Cup game between the al-Ahly and Kima Aswan teams when riot police, who were providing security at the stadium, attacked crowds of fans for calling "provocative shouts" against them and former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly.
Of the injured, 72 were security personnel and the rest were fans, a security source told the news agency.
Al-Ahly club's website reported that one man killed after he was run over by a car, but there was no immediate official confirmation.
Police have arrested at least 13 fans following the violence, the state news agency reported.
An Interior Ministry statement said the security officers were provoked after some fans "insulted" them and broke stadium chairs and threw them -- as well as rocks and firecrackers -- at the officers.
After some fans left the stadium, some of them cut off off traffic at Cairo's main Salah Salem street, but they were dispersed, MENA reported.

‘Aggro’ boasts of killed footie fan - 08/09/2011

Source : The Sun

Dad of three Mikey Dye had conviction for pitch brawl

WEMBLEY victim Mikey Dye proudly boasted about being a soccer hooligan on football forums, it was revealed last night.

He had a conviction over a pitch invasion.

And he was closely associated with Cardiff City's notorious "Soul Crew" of trouble-seeking louts.

Yet away from football matches, he was a father of three described as a "great dad" and a hard-working council pavement layer.

Mr Dye, 44, was involved in a clash between Welsh fans outside the North London stadium before Tuesday night's England v Wales Euro 2012 qualifying match.

He had a heart attack after suffering head injuries in the fracas.

One theory was that the flare-up involved fans of Cardiff and Swansea City, who have a history of hostile rivalry. Six men arrested in the Wales fans' end of the stadium were quizzed yesterday by murder case detectives before being bailed pending further inquiries.

But last night police said they believed Mr Dye was deliberately targeted by one person.

Mr Dye gave himself the nickname "Ely Trendy" after a group of Cardiff fans who formed a splinter group from the Soul Crew. He spoke openly on forums about travelling to the Championship team's away fixtures since the early 1980s and being involved in "argy bargy".

He said he was banned from going to matches for nine months and fined £425 in 1986 after a "pitch invasion and fisticuffs" at Peterborough. But he boasted: "Happy days — wouldn't change a thing."

Mr Dye told how he was in court last year charged with starting trouble at a Swansea City friendly against Swindon in July 2009.

He was arrested for obstructing a cop at Swindon railway station.

He mocked the police's handling of the case, saying in poor English: "These old bill wood not have lived with what fuzz put up with in 80s when they use to come in amonst us an losin ther helmuts an gettin punched while punchin back."

Mr Dye was a long-time friend of Cardiff fans leader Annis Abraham, 45. Mr Abraham was with him before the Wembley game, which England won 1-0, but did not witness his death. He said: "No animosity should ever result in anyone dying. It's sickening."

Mr Dye's partner Nathalie, his daughter Rebecca, 24, and 21-year-old twins James and Christopher were being comforted by relatives at their Cardiff home last night.

A pal said: "Mike was a hard-working guy and a great dad. He made sure all his children were brought up properly."

Tributes on a Facebook site set up for Mr Dye included one reading: "Can't believe Swansea/Cardiff football rivalry has ended in a man's death! WALES were playing. Fans should be on the same side."

A Bluebirds away shirt was tied to railings at the club's ground. A message scrawled on it read: "RIP Mikey Dye — Nipsy, The Clems and Beef."

Both Cardiff and Swansea sent condolences to the family. Swansea said the six men bailed were from North Wales, without saying which club they follow.

Egypt football fans charged after Thursday’s police clash - 08/09/2011

Source : Bikya Masr

Cairo neighborhood Nasr City’s prosecutors decided to hold 12 al-Ahly football club fans, arrested for four days under investigation on Thursday. The fans are accused of rioting, cutting roads and vandalizing public property.

The 12 men were arrested following post-match clashes with police, which were present to maintain security at the game.

Following the game against Kima Aswan club, police attacked the fans and chased them outside the Cairo Stadium after the fans allegedly shouted slurs and anti-Hosni Muabark chants. The police then attacked and beat the fans, who angrily vandalized around 14 cars and briefly cut the Salah Salem road near the stadium.

The fans also filed a police report against several officers and accused them of using excessive force against them and said they did not provoke the police in any way. Egypt’s ministry of interior said in a statement that the chants and slurs that the fans shouted at the police forces provoked the officers to attack them.

After hearing the news of imprisoning their fellow supporters, tens of Ahly fans gathered in front of the High Court in downtown Cairo in protest of the prosecutor’s decision.

“Don’t be silent about a brother’s right and go participate in the stand-in,” said the Ahly fan group on its Facebook page.

The football club fans announced they would be participating in Friday mass protest against the police. The group that call themselves Ahly Ultras were part of the 18 day protests that toppled ousted president Hosni Muabark’s regime last February.

Argentina's River supporters sentenced to life in prison - 08/09/2011

Source : Xinhuanet.com

Five violent supporters of Argentina's popular soccer team River Plate were on Thursday sentenced to life in prison for the murder of fellow soccer fan Gonzalo Acro in August 2007 in Buenos Aires.

The four condemned to life in prison include Alan Schlenker, 35, and his brother William, 31, both former leaders of a dangerous local gang, and both sons of a wealthy military officer.

Ariel Luna, Ruben Pintos and Pablo Giron, all 35 years old, were also handed down life sentences for what the Argentine court said was their role in "instigating the murder" of Acro, who was shot in the northern Buenos Aires suburb of Villa Urquiza.

A sixth man, Martin Lococo, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in the criminal act.

Acro, who was 29 years old at the time, died on Aug. 9, 2007 in the Pirovano Hospital, two days after being fatally wounded when he was shot by the men on his way out of a local fitness center.

River Plate, one of South America's most famous clubs, were relegated this year for the first time in their history.

Michael Dye murder: Wembley fans' CCTV image issued - 10/09/2011

Source : BBC News

Police have released CCTV images of football fans who may have information about the murder of a Wales' supporter at Wembley.

Bluebirds fan Michael Dye, 44, suffered head injuries before the Euro 2012 qualifier on Tuesday and died later in hospital.

Police want to talk to fans who were at Turnstile C before the game.

Players and fans will hold a minute's silence before Saturday's Cardiff City home game with Doncaster.

Police say the post-mortem examination gave the cause of Mr Dye's death as blunt trauma to the back of the head.

No further action is being taken against six men who were arrested in the Wales supporters area of Wembley after the incident.

'Imperative'

Officers from Metropolitan Police's Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating, and issued the CCTV image of fans at the stadium as part of the inquiry.

Acting Det Ch Insp Sheila Stewart appealed to anyone who recognises any of the witnesses in the CCTV still released to come forward.

"This incident has emerged from a moment of brutal violence with catastrophic consequences leaving behind a family without a son, husband and father," she said.

"It is imperative that we have the public's assistance to identify those involved,"

Both teams will wear black arm fans in the Cardiff City - Doncaster match later where the family of Mr Dye, will attend as guests of the club.

Sympathy cards

Wales manager Gary Speed will join both managers at the side of the pitch for the minute's silence.

On Friday afternoon, Bluebirds and Wales striker Robert Earnshaw, representing both Cardiff City and the Football Association of Wales, lay flowers at the gates.

The club said the Ninian Park gates, where many fans have left tributes, will remain closed for Saturday's game as a mark of respect.

Long-time friend Vince Alm, of Cardiff City Supporters' Club, said Mr Dye's partner Natalie and family had taken strength from the depth of feeling from fellow fans.

"There's been tributes from people who don't know him or knew him little but, because of the tragedy of it, they've wanted to show their support and grieve alongside the family," he said.

"Natalie's had sympathy cards from all sorts of people including one from the House of Commons.

"His boys have also been down there at the gates to look at the tributes. They take strength from that."

Fans are also organising a bucket collection on Saturday with cash raised being donated to the family.

UK: Fan banned for goalkeeper attack - 09/09/2011

Source : The Press Association

A teenage football fan who ran on to a pitch and floored a Premier League goalkeeper has been banned from future games.
Ross Miller confronted Newcastle United goalkeeper Steve Harper during a Tyne Wear derby at the Stadium of Light in January.
The 17-year-old, who has been a Sunderland AFC season ticket holder for 10 years, invaded the pitch seconds after Black Cats striker Asamoah Gyan scored a 94th minute equaliser.
He pushed Harper from behind, knocking him to the ground, before being escorted from the pitch by a steward.
Despite making a remorseful trip to Newcastle United's training ground to apologise to Harper, Miller has since received thousands of threats to kill him from Newcastle fans via Facebook.
The sixth former, of Tangmere, Spennymoor, County Durham, was handed a three-year banning order and a six-month referral order by District Judge Roger Elsey sitting at Sunderland Magistrates' Court on Thursday, after admitting common assault, a section four public order offence, and running on to the football pitch. Under the terms of the referral order, he is prevented from going to any Sunderland or England fixture.
The court heard the teenager was ashamed at what happened, and had written to Niall Quinn, Sunderland manager Steve Bruce and Northumbria Police to apologise for his actions.
Superintendent Andy Dyer, of Northumbria Police Operations Command, said: "Fans who get involved in disorder before, during or after games spoil it for the real supporters and we won't tolerate this sort of behaviour.
"We will act on any information received from the public and ensure that those involved in disorder are identified, put through the courts, and receive appropriate penalties and banning orders.
"Banning orders are an effective tool to help us ensure we can weed out those people who are intent on causing trouble. We will continue to enforce them as well as seeking new ones where the evidence supports such action."

Men detained in connection with death of Michael Dye, who was found with head injuries before Euro 2012 qualifier

Three more men have been arrested over the death of a Wales football fan who was found with head injuries outside Wembley stadium on Tuesday evening.

The trio remain in custody after they were detained by Scotland Yard officers on Sunday morning in connection with the death of Michael Dye.

Ian Mytton, 41, from Redditch, Worcestershire, has already been charged with the manslaughter of Dye and will appear at Redditch magistrates court on Monday.

Dye, 44, was found with severe injuries before Wales played England in a Euro 2012 qualifier.

He was taken to Northwick Park hospital but later died. A postmortem showed the cause of death to be blunt trauma to the back of the head.

Thousands of tributes have been paid to the Cardiff fan on a dedicated Facebook page, with several messages referring to his wife, Nathalie, and children.

There was applause for Dye before Cardiff's Championship match against Doncaster on Saturday, while both teams wore black armbands.

The Cardiff chief executive, Gethin Jenkins, said Dye was "clearly a committed and passionate supporter" and that his death was "extremely sad".
