FIFA Stands Against Any Hooliganism, Wants Fans To Carry Special ID Cards In 2018 World Cup

In order to avoid any violence or hooliganism in 2018 World Cup and this year’s Confederations Cup, FIFA is leaving no stone unturned. They will be issuing special ID cards to fans which they’ll have to carry throughout the game.

The fact that both the tournaments will be held in Russia are a major cause of concern for the authorities as the chances of Russian fans picking up fights with another set of fans are high – keeping in mind the acts of hooliganism by some Russians during Euro 2016 last summer in France.
