Nowadays, this can be seen all over the world at football (soccer) matches
. In some cases people throw bottles
, fire flares
with each other. At large football tournaments
there have been fights covering streets and hooligans
destroying nearby buildings
for no real reason. They didn't even loot.
During the world cup in 1998, when cafes were destroyed all over France and there was so much hooliganism that Germany's national team offered to withdraw from the tournament (as they felt their country's supporters were largely responsible), I saw a photograph in a newspaper of two men in trench coats arguing with a referee. The caption read "Hooliganism in the fifties."
