* RealLife semi-example: Winnie Mandela's bodyguards (read: armed thugs) were known as "Mandela United Football Club" and were modelled on one.



* As stated above, English Football became the most iconic example of hooliganism during the 80's. Almost every club had 'firms' who would arrange punch ups with opposing firms from other sides. This would cumulate in the disaster at Heysel, at the time the whole game was a mess, with stadia crumbling and not being up to standards (to the extent that, barely a fortnight before the Heysel disaster, 56 fans had perished in an horrific grandstand fire at Bradford City's Valley Parade stadium) and loose regulations about drinking for example. Measures put into place like catch fencing would lead to Hillsbrough where even more people died. The Taylor Report which arose from those events called for several new rules and regulations like no alcohol allowed inside the stands and all seater stadiums. Despite the occasional riot breaking out the problem has been all but solved.

Added DiffLines:

* According to the ''Literature/DresdenFiles'' short story "Last Call", this phenomenon is caused by maenads putting enchantments on craft beers served at sporting events. Dresden had to stop them when they tried to do this with several cases of Mac's beer meant to be served at a Bulls game.

Added DiffLines:

* In Indonesia, many soccer clubs have this, resulting frequently in full-blown riots. Some notorious examples are from Jakarta (The Jak or Jakmania as ''Persija'' (''Persatuan Sepak Bola Jakarta'')fans club), Surabaya (Bonek, the MOST notorious among them all, as fans club of ''Persebaya'' (''Persatuan Sepak Bola Surabaya'')), Bandung (Bobotoh and Viking, both are fans of ''Persib'' alias ''Persatuan Sepak Bola Bandung''), and Malang (Aremania, the fans of ''Arema''). Since Jakarta and Bandung are pretty close to one another as well as Surabaya and Malang pair, any match involving those pair of cities can get pretty violent

** In Canada such supporters emerge from hockey ([[CanadianEqualsHockeyFan of course]]). Montreal has had two riots in 1986 and 1993, both after the Canadiens won UsefulNotes/StanleyCup Finals; Vancouver has had two riots in 1994 and 2011, both after the Canucks lost in Game 7. Montreal also had riot back in 1955 after Maurice "The Rocket" Richard was suspended for the rest of the season for a violent on-ice incident with a linesman (the Francophone Canadien fanbase thought the suspension was too harsh and that NHL President Clarence Campbell was being racist against Richard's French-Canadian ethnicity).
