Passion is what drives soccer fans to be behind a club. In a way, it’s passion that drives sales and revenue. Healthy passion is always sporting, but on occasion, soccer fans take things too far. These dangers include riots, stampedes, knives, hooliganism, violence, etc. More often than not, everyone ends up losing. The fans and bystanders get injured, the game gets interrupted, etc.
