Is Hooliganism Really A Word?

Some friends from a pub I visit - Murphy's Law Irish Pub - were telling me about "hooliganism". Apparently this form of "soccer violence" is an international problem BBC News report. This was all news to me. Governments have had to get involved since people actually travel to international "away" games just to cause trouble... In Mannheim, here, there are "loads" of people (well more than one anyway since one is a regular at the above-mentioned pub) who have to surrender their passports and check in at a local police station TWICE A DAY!!!

Just an interesting phenomenon since I'm a die-hard Vikings fan who follows the Vikings / Packers rivalry pretty closely...
