[en] The beginning of this century has seen a shift in the type of violence associated with sports events, in particular football. Once contained by football grounds and generally one-off and spontaneous in nature, sports violence has moved to urban areas and city centres. Contemporary society is now confronted with sports violence which is often premeditated, and commonly involves hard-core supporters who seek systematic and organised confrontation at local, national and international matches and tournaments.
As hooliganism becomes international, generating similar problems in Europe and throughout the world, a common and concerted preventive response at international level is needed. The prevention of violence in sport proposes actions and structures based on experiments in progress which have already shown some degree of effectiveness. These initiatives open up a range of solutions for developing integrated preventive activities of a high standard that can be adapted to local needs.
