FOOTBALL-RELATED CRIME AND HOOLIGANISM ON STADIUM (STADIUM DELINQUENCY) AS A NEW AREA OF CRIMINOLOGICAL RESEARCH
Languages of publication
The following article describes criminological aspects of stadium delinquency. This relatively new phenomenon in Poland constitutes a subject of interest in criminology. The problem of stadium delinquency has become particularly important also because of the Euro 2012 championship organized by Poland and Ukraine. The article shows certain traits of stadium delinquency among which we should point out : strong dynamic and evolution of this sector of crime, transfer of criminal activity outside sports facilities, connection of stadium delinquency with organized crime, especially the participation of hooligan groups in the drug trade among others. A significant aspect is also the fact that hooligans take part in so–called hate– crimes, which involves the diffusion of extremely right–wing attitude among certain groups of football hooligans.
