New legislation to prevent hooliganism

Turkey´s parliament has approved legislation aimed at stemming hooliganism at football matches and other competitions.

Up to two years in prison for chanting racial slurs, on year prison for bringing guns

The legislation, passed late Thursday, introduces up to two years in prison for fans chanting racial slurs and obscenities and one-year prison terms for fans attempting to bring guns, sharp objects or flares to sports events.

Fans can only purchase electronic tickets

With the new legislation, fans can only purchase electronic tickets using government ID numbers, making it easier to track and punish troublemakers.
In a bid to tackle match-fixing, individuals caught bribing players or paying fees to teams as incentives face a maximum 12 years in prison.

The Turkish football league is frequently marred by crowd trouble.

Ex one was also good, the only problem was to put them into practise. Let´s see if they can put these into practise, for instance I wonder how they will prevent fans to take alcohol...

Isn´t the same with most of our laws. If they were put into practise, we wouldn´t come this point in this issue either.

 

Anyway, now we have to think twice before attending a sport activity as a spectator. Personally I am worried if I´d be in the middle of something and jailed even if I were innocent.

Never been to a match but have watched several on TV.  I remember one match in particular where fans where throwing things unto the field and the game was stopped.  Doesn´t seem like so much fun!

 

My husband and I went to a recent match between the Houston Dynamo and Manchester United...he said it was much too calm for him!  {#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}

Hooliganism is a huge problem in Europe. Poland is hosting Euro 2012 and this issue has to be looked into. Bracelets are being considered to be put on aggressive hooligans´ legs to make sure they stay at home during matches.

I find it sad that violent groups make it impossible for families to go to a match with children and teach them the love for sport can be a civilised thing. Thugs have ruined this sport (and the huge money involved had its share too)
