Abstract:
Summary: Sport is part of the heritage of all men and women and its absence can never be compensated for. As it is a growing social and economic phenomenon that makes an important contribution to the European Union's strategic objectives of solidarity and prosperity, it is important that it serves to foster peace and understanding between nations and cultures, as well as the education of young people, etc.
However, sport is also confronted with new threats and challenges emerging in European society, such as commercial pressure, the exploitation of young sportsmen and women, doping, racism, corruption and money laundering, as well as widespread violence among fans, young people and other actors in the sports world.
The aim of this article is to identify different forms of violence, particularly that perpetrated by Hooligans. The methodology used is the literature review and, with this work, it was possible to conclude that violence in football extends from practitioners, to managers, coaches, referees, cheerleaders and other sports actors, victims or guilty of the anger of their opponents. The importance of organisations such as FIFA and UEFA is crucial to regulate and supervise the organisation and security of events, as well as to raise awareness among those involved of sporting freedom and not to incite violence in sport.
