Background:

Hooliganism has become recognised by governments and the media as a serious problem since the 1960s. Scientists have been offering explanations of football hooliganism mainly from a psychosocial approach.

Aims:

The primary objective of this study was to collect measurable data of violence risk in football hooligans.

Methods:

We used the Plutchik and van Praag's Past Feelings and Acts of Violence (PFAV) Scale to measure the risk of violent acts in three samples: hooligans from a professional football team, standard football supporters, and a control sample.

Results:

We found an increased risk of violent behaviour in all the individuals from the hooligan sample, but not in the standard supporters' sample.

Conclusions:

Football hooligans have extremely high risk of committing violent acts. Standard football supporters are not more violent than general population.
