Objectives The research examines and summarizes foreign and Russian practices of countering radical fanaticism in football, identifies the most effective forms for curbing illegal activities. We articulate and substantiate our own methods in this area.
Methods We apply a systems approach, traditional methods of theoretical research, i.e. deduction, induction, methods of analysis and synthesis.
Results We provide the rationale for a cluster approach to countering radical fanaticism in football. It requires to split the competition process into three structural components – transport, tourism and sports. As part of the clusters, we suggest implementing a set of preventive measures to screen radical fans before football matches. This technique will help to demarcate areas of law enforcement authorities’ responsibilities and duties and timely respond to unlawful activities of radical football fans.
