Abstract [en]

Within the frame of a project describing, analysing, and interpreting  inter-group actions in large groups, we analysed a ten-minute video-sequence during a so-called high-risk footballmatch when supporters acted violently.

The local derby in Stockholm, Sweden, took place in august 2008. When these two teams meet usually high tension between the supporter groups develops and a large number of police officers are present, trying to prevent riots. The particular incident investigated took place right after a controversial penalty kick. The judgement of the referee was questioned and some fireworks were launched.

Findings of a thorough video-analysis show extensive inter-group activities both between supporter subgroups and between supporter groups, as well as with the group of police officers and security personnel. At the same time evidence for self-policing could be found.
