Eriksson says that police should still be called in for back-up during high-risk games, but that otherwise the clubs themselves should be responsible for security, as is the case in the UK and Germany, for example, according to Swedish Radio News.
Fans who are drunk should be stopped from entering the stadia, Eriksson adds, and more should be done to stop organised crime from infiltrating the sporting world.

Two years ago the government appointed former governor Björn Eriksson as coordinator of a project on hooliganism. He presented his final report today. And he says there is a worrying amount of crime and violence involved in the clubs themselves: about 40 percent of sport club bosses and 10 percent of players report that they have been the target of violent threats (The same figure for the police is just 8 percent).
Talking to Björn Eriksson today, he says that people need to realize how big a problem crime is for sports clubs. Presenter: Loukas Christodoulou.
