Abstract

“Citius, Altius, Fortius” - "Faster, Higher and Stronger" are values that every athlete strives for. Audience support should help push those boundaries. Such a symbiosis between athletes and fans should aim for mutual respect and tolerance. Unfortunately, instead of being platforms for social interaction of diversity and promotion of fair play ideals; sporting events become a source of hatred and violence. It is also strongly expressed in Balkan countries where social problems in society are reflected in the most extreme forms of sports fields, through offensive chanting and violent incidents and erase the distinction between cheering and hate speech. For that reasons, the purpose of this paper is to analyze how the Balkan countries cope with these challenges and to address the complementarity of their legislation, both among themselves and with regard to international law. Key words: sport, cheering, hate speech, Balkan countries, legislations
