Ivan Anastasovski

Any advanced and modern society has a serious attitude towards sports as a social area in which, besides the game, specific elements of certain cultures and their mutual influence are manifested as well. In conditions of local, regional and national rivalry or complete identification of fans of the club, cultural conflict might happen to turn into a conflict between two opposing cultures. Outburst of frustrations in such situations causes deviant behaviour that takes elements of violent and aggressive behaviour that is sanctioned by law. Deviant behaviour at sports events has long been known as a social phenomenon of modern sporst with all the sociological attributes. Rampage at sports events and outside the sports fields in the world is a mandatory announcement of top sporting event as decoration with very frequent tragic consequences. Stands become an image of society, with well-defined range of opportunities for fan selection. In the Republic of Macedonia there are rudiments and serious grounds for existence of deviant behaviour by visitors before, during and after sports events. Spirit of deviant behaviour can be easily notnoticed during maintenance of important sports events in Republic of Macedonia.
