Ivan Anastasovski, Lence A. Velickovska, Natasha Meshkovska

Every advanced and modern society has a serious attitude towards the sport as a social area which beside the game also manifests specific elements of certain cultures and their mutual influence. In terms of local, regional and national rivalry or complete identification of fans of the club, cultural conflict is going to turn into a conflict between two opposing cultures. Outpouring of human frustration in such situations causes deviant behaviour that gets 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 sport with all the sociological attributes. Rampage at sports events and out of them in the world is a mandatory notice of top sporting event like a decoration with frequent tragic consequences. Stands become a picture 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 is easily sensed during maintenance of important sports events in Republic of Macedonia.
