This year's Qatar World Football Championship has made great efforts in Wei'an, setting up tens of thousands of monitors, and prohibiting football hooligans from buying tickets during ticket sales.

A recap of the big events of football hooligans
The term football hooligan is inextricably linked to the sport of football. This phenomenon existed on the ball as early as the 19th century, but it still exists and continues to this day.

At the beginning of June 2016, after the start of the European Cup between the England national team and Russia in the European Cup in France, England fans started to shout because they were too excited, causing residents to be dissatisfied and began to chase and fight each other, causing a man to be beaten to a coma. And another fan suffered a heart attack and four police officers were injured, but the riot was only the first football hooligan incident at Euro 2016.
After the England-Russia group match ended, Russian fans began to vent irrationally, with knives and even beating people. Some Russians tore up the English flag. The scene was out of control for a time, forcing the French authorities to send nearly 2,200 security personnel. To maintain order, these police forces were originally used for terrorist attacks, but unexpectedly they were used in football hooligan incidents.

Football hooliganism at the World Cup
World football hooligans can be said to have been carried forward in England at that time when more organizations and gangs carried out football hooliganism in the heyday. Therefore, before the 2018 World Cup kicked off, with the lessons learned from the 2016 European Cup, the English government took the lead in detaining the passports of fans with a history of football hooliganism and prohibited them from causing trouble at the World Cup. It is also quite interesting that the local Russian government used the method of "repressing violence with violence" and using local gangsters to train the masses to intimidate football hooligans.
Football hooligan incidents may also extend to unrest between countries. At the 1969 World Cup, Honduras and El Salvador sparked a "football war". To compete for tickets to the World Cup final, the two countries participated in the World Cup Qualifiers in North and Central America in just one month. They faced off three times, and in the end, it was El Salvador who advanced in the third match. However, on the day of the third game, Honduras and El Salvador officially announced their severance of diplomatic relations, and began a two-week war, causing thousands of casualties. The Cup football match also indirectly contributed to the tension between the two countries.

South Korea, which hosted the World Cup football match in June this year, announced that it would send five anti-terror police officers to assist in security work and provide professional training for local military and police personnel.
