After problems with unruly and, at times, violent crowds Stockholm-based football club Djurgården IF, wants to create a list with names and pictures of particularly difficult supporters.

The list would help police and guards to keep the supporters from attending the games but such a list would be against the Personal Data Act, Swedish Radio News reports.

And Minister of Culture and Sports Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth is in favour of the idea.

“I know that it is a strong wish in several football clubs, in this case Djurgården, to try this law,” she said. “There is a lot of frustration among the clubs, and they want to contribute to safety and making the games calmer and more enjoyable for the audience. It is a problem that you don’t know which supporters are the violent once.”

The law already allows football clubs to refuse entrance to supporters who are considered violent but it is difficult for police and security guards to remember the names and faces of everyone, according to Mats Jonsson, a spokesman for Djurgården.
