Abstract

The attention and institutional reaction of every organization which treats these problems started shortly after the incident on Heysel Stadium, Belgium, on May 28th 1985. The question which still has no answer is the one if that was a hooligans clash or was a security omission. Few months later, the Council of Europe adopted the European Convention on Spectator Violence and Misbehavior at Sports Events and in particular at Football Matches. Knowing the circumstances on the Balkan Peninsula we ask where are the ex-Yugoslav republics on this. How is it possible in democratic societies as ours declare, sport spectators and fans to become disposable goods? Is hooliganism the “privilege” of England or is it slowly, but surely becoming universal adjective for fan groups all around the world? Macedonian stadiums today are places used for national, ethnic or religious matches. In our country, the Law for prevention of violence and misbehavior on sport events was adopted by authorities in 2004, using the example of Croatia and Serbia. But nine years later we still have the dilemma will its amendments decrease the risk of appearance of violence on sport events and are those amendments a reflection of the real situation in the Republic of Macedonia? The paper gives a short historical overview of the problem of violence on sport events in Europe and the Balkan countries and examines the problems in Macedonia and its legislation. It is absolutely inevitable the necessity of solving the problem through interdisciplinary prism and not to let the legislation and its sanctions to be used as the only weapon of prevention. Key words: Council of Europe, convention, hooligans, sport events, violence.
