Hooligans and Carnival Fans: Scottish Football Supporter Cultures

  • Chapter

Abstract

Scotland’s contribution to the historical development and cultural richness of world football cannot be denied. Scottish players taught the world the benefits of the ‘passing game’ at the turn of the century, and became the first to defeat England regularly home and away (Walvin 1994). Scottish players and managers have been vital to the success of British clubs in domestic and European competition, while Scottish coaches and administrators continue to play a leading role in world football’s affairs. However, Scotland’s influence in the playing and administration of football has been in some decline in recent years. It may even be said to have been outshone by the Scottish supporters, whose international significance has long been noteworthy.
