"British laws" needed against hooligans say FA heads
The heads of the Swedish football association have said that the government has to help them deal with criminal activity around football matches.
The president of the association, Lars-Åke Lagrell, and its general secretary, Mikael Santoft, say in a debate article in Dagens Nyheter that new laws must be brought in, before someone dies.
On Sunday, an Allsvenskan match between Syrianska and AIK was forcibly abandoned after an assistant referee was hit on the head by a firework, one of several thrown onto the pitch.
The heads of the football association want to imitate rules in England where those who are banned from attending football matches have to notify the police as soon as a match starts, to prove that they are not at the arena.
