Ultra Football Club – level 2

18-05-18 07:00

People know Rome for its history, culture, passion for football, and also dangerous fanatics. Ultra is the following of one football club and it is a group of organised gangs with planned violence.

Ultra started with people who wanted to be in paramilitary groups and gave themselves titles. Later on, the group adopted neo-fascist ideas and began stabbing foreigners of other football teams.

While most people in Italy feel that Ultra does not have much power, dealing with this problem will continue.

Difficult words: fanatic (a person who is extremely interested in something), paramilitary (people who make their own military groups), neo-fascist (strong beliefs in a country and certain political ideas that exist after WWII).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
