Rangers: Fans singing sectarian songs face lifetime ban - 01/08/2008

Source: http://www.theherald.co.uk

TwoRangers supporters were yesterday facing football banning orders after they were caught singing sectarian songs on the Subway before Wednesday's Champions League qualifier.

The men, both understood to be season ticket-holders, were arrested by British Transport Police at Ibrox station before Rangers' clash with Lithuanian side FC Kaunas.

The force said earlier this week that it would not tolerate sectarian offences. It has equipped some officers with headcams that help monitor crowds, although these were not used for the arrests.

The Herald understands that Rangers FC has been informed of the arrests. A spokesman for the BTP said: "We will be seeking for football banning orders."

Croatian hooligans banned from entering Malta again - 02/08/2008

Source: http://www.timesofmalta.com

Seven fans who clashed with the police and caused mayhem at the Ta' Qali football ground during a UEFA Cup match between Birkirkara and a Croatian team were yesterday warned by a magistrate to forget about ever returning to Malta.

Magistrate Antonio Mizzi told the men to forget about coming to Malta ever again. This, however, could not apply to one of the men who also held Austrian citizenship, and Austria is a member of the European Union. The men are Croatian nationals Anto Mratovic, 26, Anto Matic, 25, Ante Pamukovic 25, Zolan Ancic, 21 and Pavo Hadija, 18, as well as Austria-born Petar Michael Puratic, 23 and Austrian national Milenko Mrkonjic, 23.

They all pleaded guilty to assaulting, threatening and slightly injuring a number of police officers, including Assistant Commissioner Josie Brincat and Inspector Mario Tonna. They also pleaded guilty to disobeying police orders, resisting the police and igniting flares and other pyrotechnic material without a licence issued by the Police Commissioner.

They also pleaded guilty to instigating and inciting other people to commit a crime and forming part of a group of people with intent to commit a crime. Just before the proceedings of their arraignment began, Magistrate Mizzi asked the men whether they had enjoyed their stay in Malta. They replied in the negative and to this the magistrate replied: "I am very happy to hear that your stay in Malta was not enjoyable because you will not be coming here again, except the Austrian, since he is an EU national. But the rest of you are not welcome here".

The magistrate handed down a one-year jail term suspended for three years and informed them that, with the exception of the Austrian, they were being deported and banned from entering Malta again.

Police Inspectors Mario Tonna and Mario Haber prosecuted.

Lawyer Mark Busuttil appeared for the men. On September 7, 2005, a group of over 100 Croatian fans caused mayhem at the Ta' Qali football ground soon after the end of a World Cup qualifying match between Croatia and Malta, when Croatia was held to a one-one draw. A total of 103 fans had been charged in court.

Rangers: Head-mounted cameras for cops in battle against sectarian songs on Underground - 02/08/2008

Source: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk

POLICE will wear cameras on their heads as part of a crackdown on football fans who sing sectarian songs on Glasgow's Underground.

The move comes amid fears the problem is getting worse.

Senior police and transport sources say fewer fans are willing to sing banned songs in stadiums - in case their club gets kicked out of Europe.

But they claim a hard core are "venting their spleen" on the way to the ground instead.

Officers with cameras and audio recorders will patrol the city's railway and subway systems before big games.

British Transport Police said plain-clothes officers with concealed cameras might also be used.

Two Rangers fans were arrested on the underground for singing sectarian songs before Wednesday's Champions League qualifier against FC Kaunas.

Chief Inspector Alex McGuire said: "We won't tolerate this behaviour."

United-States: Fan stabbed at soccer game - 03/08/2008

Source: The Salt Lake Tribune

A soccer game at a city park in West Valley City turned violent Saturday when a fan was stabbed by a teenager cheering for a rival team. West Valley City police said a 16-year-old walked up to a 33-year-old man about 1 p.m. near 3200 West and 3200 South and stabbed him once in the chest with a folding knife. The incident apparently stemmed from a disagreement between two families supporting rival teams at the game, said West Valley City police Lt. Bill Merritt. Investigators also are examining whether the incident was gang-related and not simply an argument over soccer, he said. Witnesses said the teenager walked up to the victim from behind, pushed him and stabbed him, Merritt said. The victim was flown by helicopter to University Hospital. He underwent surgery and remained in critical condition late Saturday. The teenager was arrested and booked into a juvenile detention center, Merritt said.

Panserraïkos - PAOK Salonika - Friendly played in Serres - 02/08/2008

Source : AP + Goal.com + Sport 24

Violence Spoils Greek Friendly

It started out as a friendly game between Panserraikos and PAOK, but was interrupted after 13 minutes because of fights in the stands and on the pitch.

A 12-year-old was taken to hospital, and several other fans were slightly injured. It resulted in the referee terminating the game prematurely.

The two teams usually have a very good relationship, and each year they play friendly matches either in the summer or winter season.

Such was today’s encounter that brought over 3000 fans of PAOK to Serres, where the match was played.

It thought to be a very good test for both teams, but it ended in a mini-tragedy.

Because of the usual nature of the game, there was a shortage of police at the stadium, and unfortunately some unprincipled fans tried to exploit this.

After the 10th minute, some fans of PAOK, sitting in the opposition’s stands were prompted to move beside their own supporters.

The last ones to move reacted badly, and that was the reason for extensive fights.

Fans outside the stadium started to throw items at the Panserraikos stands, which resulted in the fans clamouring onto the field of play.

Inevitably, the match was delayed, and after negotiations between the two clubs, it was decided that it was the best for all to put an end to proceedings.

7 people injured in football clashes

Fans clashed in the stands during a preseason Greek football game Saturday, leaving seven people injured and forcing the game to be abandoned in the 15th minute.
None of the injuries was serious, with two people requiring hospital treatment, police said.

The clashes began when fans of Panserraikos and PAOK found themselves seated in the same terraces. The violence spread, causing damages to downtown businesses.

The outburst comes despite annual pledges by the Greek government, sports authorities and teams to stamp out violence.

Rowdy German football fans catch Danish police off guard

A group of rowdy football fans supporting German team Hansa Rostock caught Danish police off guard Saturday, reports said. The fans had travelled from Germany to watch Hansa Rostock play a friendly against Naestved BK, a town in southern Zealand.

The online edition of local newspaper Folketidende reported that some of the 250 Hansa Rostock fans stole beer from a shop at a train station in the town of Nykobing Falster on their way to Naestved.

Flag poles were vandalized in the town of Gedser.

Local police said they had not had advance warning of possible trouble but have called in back up from Copenhagen to ensure better order when the fans leave for Germany.

300 football hooligans disrupted a friendly training match between FC Hanse Rostock and Næstved


A friendly training football match between German FC Hansa Rostock and Næstved in southern Zealand was marred by violence last week.

Up to 300 German fans were locked inside the stadium after they wreaked havoc on their journey to the game. The ferry crossing from Germany saw acts of vandalism and theft of drinks, while the arrival in Gedser resulted in flagpoles being destroyed.

There were reports of theft from bus drivers in Nykøbing and drinks being stolen from local kiosks at the station. Fireworks were brought into the stadium and aimed at police who had assembled in riot gear.

Local police were initially unable to cope with the level of violence and called in reinforcements from the Copenhagen Police. Up to 40 officers traveled to the scene to help the three local officers quell the hooligans.

Public broadcaster DR reported that the man running the hotdog stand in the stadium fled in fear, leaving the rioters free access to eight kegs of beer and 52 cases of hotdogs.

Six people were arrested in connection with the trouble. Kenneth Pedersen from the South-Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police said that four Germans were arrested in Næstved and fined with disturbing the peace. Two more were arrested by the ferry in Gedser and handed over to German police.

Following the game, which finished 2-1 to the visitors, the police escorted the fans back to the ferry where they were accompanied to Germany with a police escort.

Lars Jensen, head of Næstved football club, said that there was no doubt that the bill for damage at the stadium would be sent to the Germans.

Sparta fans unfurl banner supporting Karadzic

Prague, Aug 2 (CTK) - A banner supporting former Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, who was recently arrested on suspicion of war crimes, appeared among the fans of Sparta Praha club at the stadium during the Czech first league's opening match Sparta vs Mlada Boleslav Saturday.

The banner reading "Mladic, Karadzic, hold on! You will not divide the Slavs, death to the EU!" also expressed support for former Serbian general Ratko Mladic.

The match organisers did not react to the situation.

Sparta spokesman Jakub Otava said the club would solve the situation with representatives of the hard core fans in the days to come.

Sparta has faced problems over banners and slogans of its fans for years. It usually pays high fines mainly over racist offences during the European cups matches.

Police appeal over Newcastle-Sunderland derby hooligans - 04/08/2008

Source : Shields Gazette

POLICE today appealed for help to identify seven suspected hooligans involved in trouble at the last Newcastle-Sunderland derby.

A number of public order offences were committed as fans were walking away from St James's Park on Sunday, April 20 this year.

Northumbria Police want to speak to the men pictured in connection with these offences.

Officers have already identified many of those involved in disorder on the day.

Craig Armstrong, 27, of Bentinck House, Newcastle, was charged with a public order offence, and sentenced to a 12-month conditional discharge and made the subject of a three-year banning order.

Mark Chesser, 34, of Benson Road, Newcastle, was also charged with a public order offence and appeared in court on Friday.

Three youths - two aged 16 and one 17 - have also been charged with public order offences.

Detective Sergeant Rob Spoor said: "Since the derby game we've worked hard to identify several people involved in disorder following the game, and they have now been charged.

"We've also managed to get a banning order in place, and are applying for several others, which is good for law-abiding football fans.

"Fans who get involved in disorder before, during or after games spoil it for the real supporters, and we just won't tolerate this sort of violent of disorderly behaviour.

"I'd ask anyone who has any information about the men in these photographs to contact us as soon as possible."

THIS rogues gallery of suspected soccer thugs are believed to have been behind derby day violence.

Police and rival fans came under attack when a 300-strong Magpies mob went on the rampage through Newcastle city centre.

Missiles were thrown and fights flared as innocent families looked on in horror at the ugly scenes after Newcastle United’s fixture with Sunderland.

Today, police called on the public to help name and shame eight key figures in the city centre disorder.

Officers collected hours of CCTV footage of the trouble, which flared as they tried to usher Sunderland fans from St James’s Park and to the station.

Toon supporters pressed against the police cordon and began taunting their opponents, fighting amongst themselves and abusing police.

Stills from the video evidence have been released exclusively to the Chronicle in a bid to track down the key hooligans. One man, in a navy top and short hair is seen squaring up for a scrap, while a second is pictured with a scarf round his neck, appearing to be shouting abuse at rival fans or officers.

A third can be seen in profile, linking arms with an associate, while another younger-looking man has his arms spread open in the air.

A skinhead with a black-and-white hooped jumper has been captured holding onto a railing and a fifth suspect is caught on film with a hat on, knees bent and spoiling for a fight with the police line.

A sixth man is seen with a light-coloured checked shirt on under a jacket, and the final wanted person has fair, short-cropped hair with a United top on.

Det Sgt Rob Spoor said: “Since the derby game, we’ve worked hard to identify several people involved in disorder following the game and they have now been charged.

“We’ve also managed to get a banning order in place and are applying for several others, which is good for the law abiding football fans.

“Fans who get involved in disorder before, during or after games spoil it for the real supporters and we just won’t tolerate this sort of violent of disorderly behaviour. I’d ask anyone who has any information about the men in these photographs to contact us.”

Trouble flared into the night of the derby, on April 20, which was won 2-0 by Newcastle.

Drunk fans fought with each other and caused criminal damage. Immediately after the fixture, officers had to use horses to drive back Newcastle supporters who were taunting rivals.

This weekend played the Spurs, Celtic and Dortmund against Feyenoord in the context of the 100-year anniversary. The tournament was loaded because in 1974 the Spurs hooligans introduced hooliganism in Rotterdam. Friday there were German and English fans arrested because of vandalism and drunkenness. Sunday a group of about 40 Spurs hooligans were looking for a confrontation. In the center of the city riot police barely avoided a confrontation. About 25 men from this group had no ticket for the game and were. British police ordered the Dutch riotpolice to arrested them.

Inter fined for "existential" harm to Napoli fan - 06/08/2008

Source : Reuters + Guardian.co.uk

Italian champions Inter Milan have been ordered to pay a Napoli fan 1,500 euros for "existential damage" caused by banners calling Naples the "sewer of Italy" displayed at San Siro last October.

Italian news agencies said on Tuesday that a Naples court had ordered Inter to pay the fan, identified only by initials, compensation and legal costs for insults which refer to a refuse crisis that left garbage rotting in Naples' streets.

"Ciao cholera sufferers!" read another of the banners seen at the Oct. 6 game which the fan's lawyer, Raffaele Di Monda, said had made his client feel "indignant and deeply hurt".

Inter, who won the game 2-1, had already been punished by the Italian league with the closure of the sections of San Siro where the banners had been shown for the following home match.

The club fought against the lawsuit arguing that the Naples court did not have jurisdiction.

The Italian champions Internazionale have been ordered to pay a Napoli fan €1,500 (£1,190) for "existential damage" caused by banners displayed during a match at San Siro last October calling Naples the "sewer of Italy".

Other banners at the game, which Inter won 2-1, read "Ciao cholera sufferers!" and "Neopolitans have tuberculosis", while fans also sang offensive chants. The Napoli supporter's lawyer, Raffaele Di Monda, said the abuse had made his client feel "indignant and deeply hurt".The Italian league had already punished Inter by closing the sections of their stadium where the banners had been displayed for their following home game.

The court in Naples also ordered Inter to pay the fan, identified only by the initials GDB, compensation and legal costs for insults which referred to a refuse crisis that left rubbish rotting in Naples' streets. Inter, however, are insisting that the court does not have jurisdiction over events that take place in Milan.

Flamengo fans throw bomb at players - 06/08/2008

Source : Xinhua

Flamengo fans threw a homemade bomb at the team during practice, on Tuesday morning, injuring defender Dininho and striker Obina.

Dininho had small cuts on his leg, back and behind the ear, while Obina was hit by splinters on his arm.

A group of fans was protesting against Flamengo's latest bad results in the Brazilian League when someone threw the bomb from the other side of the field, injuring the two players.

Goalkeeper Bruno, left winger Juan and midfielder Ibson wanted to fight the fans and had to be contained by their teammates. The athletes wonder why it was easy for the fans to enter the field, as only the club members have permission to watch practices.

"They brought a bomb to the club and could have brought something worse. We have to know who authorized their presence," Juan said.

The bomb incident is the latest of many misfortunes that affected Flamengo this season. After an auspicious season start, with a State Championship title and ten rounds in the Brazilian League'slead, the team's luck changed. Flamengo has not won a single match since July 17 and is now sixth in the rankings.

Experts say the cause for the club's bad results is the loss of several players. Many strikers and attacking midfielders transferred to European clubs. Others suffered grave injuries, suchas Diego Tardelli, who had an open fracture on his right arm on Sunday and had to undergo surgery. He will take four months to recover and is out of the 2008 season.

Swiss police intercept German hooligans

Swiss police said Thursday a group of known German football hooligans was stopped from attending a Champions League qualifying match between FC Basel and Swedish club IFK Goteborg.

A bus carrying followers of German club Nuremberg — who have supporter ties to Goteborg — was intercepted before reaching the stadium and escorted back to the nearby Swiss-German border, Basel security authorities said.

In a separate incident, around 30 Basel supporters attacked a tram carrying Swedish fans, causing damage estimated at 5,000 Swiss francs (US$4,740). Seven were arrested and three held by police overnight.

Two more fans, one Swiss and one Swedish, were arrested at the St. Jakob-Park stadium for possessing flare fireworks.

England: Alcohol 'to blame' for increase in football disorder - 07/08/2008

Source : 24dash

British Transport Police has called on football fans to act responsibly this coming football season, with figures from last season showing a worrying increase in alcohol-fuelled violence by fans using the railway system.

BTP Assistant Chief Constable Operations Alan Pacey said the 2007-2008 season saw a 10 per cent increase in football related anti-social and alcohol-fuelled incidents on trains and at stations across the England, Wales and Scotland.

"The 2007/2008 season was definitely a challenging one for us. Alcohol-fuelled disorder was the most prevalent problem, with an increase from 305 to 337 incidents. We also had 25 police officers assaulted during the season – the highest number ever recorded by BTP," he said.

"We did however get a better grip on organised hooligan elements through increased use of football banning orders on known trouble-makers. Consequently we had a reduction in serious incidents from 83 in the 2006/07 season to 63 last season."

For the eighth season running, football-related arrests have increased - up from 567 to 601.

"In the same time period we secured 122 football banning orders, with many cases still pending.

"This is something we will continue to pursue to ensure that those who engage in disorder are banned from travelling to, or from attending, football matches.

"We will use all the tools at our disposal to rid the railway system of football troublemakers. We know that these people are in the minority but we don’t want them spoiling things for the majority of law-abiding football fans.

"Our number one concern is ensuring that well-behaved football fans as well as other members of the public who are using the transport system on match days can travel from A to B in safety.

"With the ever expanding list of fixtures, including the creation of the European Champions League, the pressures on us as a force to provide policing for multiple matches in multiple leagues across the country has never been greater.

"A forum which brings together key groups from the railway industry, the FA,Football League and Premier League, supporters associations and BTP has been also been set up to work through any issues that may be causing concern."

ACC Pacey said the forum was eager to ensure that season 2008/2009 was a success.

"We would appeal to fans ahead of the new football season not to over indulge in alcohol. For those coming into London, we would remind passengers to adhere to the ban on consumption of alcohol on the Tube, along with any other "dry train" restrictions which may be imposed by mainline train operators throughout the season.

"Officers will be out in force across the country monitoring fixtures and working with football clubs and colleagues from other forces to ensure each match is policed successfully and with the minimum amount of trouble."

Booze warning ahead of football season

TRANSPORT police have revealed that the last football season was a challenge following an increase in the number of anti-social and alcohol-related incidents.

The British Transport Police (BTP) in south London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex made 51 arrests last season.

Of that total, 16 people were arrested and charged following an incident at Sydenham rail station in September as Charlton fans travelled to a match at Crystal Palace.

BTP's football liaison officer in south London PC Lee Garrett says police had seen a worrying increase in anti-social and alcohol-fuelled incidents.

He said: "Alcohol has definitely played a factor with those arrested, with incidents ranging from low-level disorder, assaults and public order offences like swearing and abusive behaviour."

BTP's assistant chief constable of operations Alan Pacey added: "Last season was definitely a challenging one for us.

advertisement"We would appeal to fans ahead of the new football season not to over indulge in alcohol and will use all the tools at our disposal to rid the railway system of football troublemakers.

"These people are in the minority but we don't want them spoiling things for the majority of law-abiding football fans."

Across the country, alcohol-fuelled disorder was the most significant problem for BTP, with an increase from 305 to 337 incidents.

The force also had 25 police officers assaulted during the season - the highest number ever recorded.

BTP arrests nationally for football-related offences increased from 567 to 601 arrests during the 2007/8 season, up for the eighth season running.
