This is how hooligans act

It seems that nowadays football hooliganism is becoming an expensive "sport" as buying smoke bombs, pyrotechnics, and even petrol used for molotov cocktails, requires thousands of euro annually. Given that costs in this area has also skyrocketed, Greek hooligans prefer the cheaper Italian market, from where they order online their "ammunition" by the dozen!

However, how do the ordinary fans (the vast majority of them low wage earners or unemployed) find so much money? The answer is simple because it is no secret that in many cases the management of the football headquarters has directly funded organized fans to keep them on their side, and not as adversaries. Even, however, if there was no direct funding, the relationship of the teams with the fans is supported indirectly through the tickets which teams sell at a discount to the organized fans who then resell them at a premium of 5 euro to boost their funds and have more money for "ammunition".
