Two categories of fans are considered to be the main ones in the football crowd - the so-called "ultras" and the football hooligans "hools".
The football fans are a subculture of football fans who start riots and fights. Offniks (offenders) are usually called those who are indirectly related to the football environment. Most often these are teenagers who have adopted certain principles from football hooligans and actively promote them.
Ultras are those who come to the stadiums with firelights, banners and flags and arrange there is a whole show in the stands in honor of your favorite team. Ultras support the team regardless of the outcome of the meeting, attend all the games of their club, defend the club colors and play the whole match on their feet.
Football hooligans at the stadium keep together with Ultras , and after the match they go to fight "for the club" - again, regardless of the outcome of the match. It is the fight of football hooligans or "hooligans" that can be seen in videos on YouTube. It was about them that in 2013 the director Anton Bormatov made the film "Okolofutbola" about them.
I'm a football player, this is a sport eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
As a rule, it is a symbiosis of both athletes and hooligans. If we talk about the average "football player", then in everyday life this is an ordinary young man who works, studies, goes in for sports. But as soon as it comes to football, then this young man is ready to mutuz until he loses his pulse another one just because he sympathizes with another football team. Even special trips to the "glades" are organized, where wall-to-wall battles are arranged. At a football match, the standard attributes of such a person are pyrotechnics, aggressive behavior and obscene chants, for which many fans are "taken" under Article 213 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation - hooliganism.
In general, "near football" is a whole subculture with its history, traditions and hierarchy.
