6 of the most dangerous hooligans in Italy

Italian football is often the center of the attention because of clashes outside the stadium between the various groups of hooligans. The memory of the incidents in the capital, during the final of the Italian Cup between fans of Rome and Naples is still alive.

In Italy the clashes occur more and more often, especially when you have to “meet” the most dangerous supporters. We wanted to create a list of the more radical supporters, according to some statistics and reports from last years.

The peculiarity is that the rival fans often come together to lash out against the police. Exactly the police is the common enemy who unites different ultras and hooligans in whole Italy. Here is the report we made, its NOT rating list. If you have any other opinions, please feel free to share it in comments.

The ultras from Curva A are among the most extreme in Italy. In addition, the general hatred of all other hooligans in Italy makes every Napoli match with high risk.

There are many clashes with the protagonists from Neapol: mainly against Roma, Fiorentina and Juventus. If we go back in time, even against Salerno, Napoli hooligans created one the most dangerous fights in italian hooligans history.

Many fans call “heavy” the air that you breathe in Verona. The trip in Veneto becomes increasingly difficult for many supporters, who fear the evil Brigades Gialloblu.

In the past there were also incidents between hooligan organization “Hot and nasty” of Verona and the opponents. The Verona ultras never enjoyed the sympathy of the other Italian supporters.

One of the biggest fears for police are the Drunks of Catania. The Sicillian ultras became the protagonists of some clashes with rivals from Verona and became “famous” becouse of the fight against police, after the match against Palermo.

During the riots in that night hooligans from Catania killed the police officer and the Catania stadium closed doors for whole season. The entire Seria A was suspended after those incidents.
