Ranked: The most violent fans in football

Jack Hart

Football is notorious for hooliganism and full on violence when home and away fans clash. Some clubs are more guilty of this than others, mostly thanks to their ‘ultra’ fans.

Groups of hardcore fans that light flares, organise huge banners and, in many cases, attack opposing fans. From fist fights to stabbings to thousands of fans doing battle on the pitch, here’s a list of the most violent fans in world football.

Fans such as these give football a bad name but for them it’s less of a weekend activity and more of a way of life. Football is their religion and they are willing to do battle with rival fans all in the name of the ‘beautiful’ game.
