Zambrano Ayala, William Ricardo | 2004-01
The soccer show a mass phenomenon, which has created a great controversy and disconfort in the actual society, due to the passion of the colombian hoolingans who vent their pressures, feelings, disappointments, happiness, sadness and insatisfactions in the stadium gradiens and surroundings. The progressive transformations of these juvenile groups, expressing a ritual within the sportive boundaries and in the daily life, have contributed that researchers focus their attention on them. The statements oversight the necessity to explore the cultural and communicative phenomenon of the troublesome fans, their neux and interactions between several groups, their way of living, their spaces and identities, symbolism and expression, so that useful interpretative clues can be provided for a adequate understanding of the established problems that have been ignored by researchers until this moment. The complexity and diversity of these young members of troublesome fans has not been researched yet. We consider that they have created their own spaces and symbolism s according to their praxis and they express them before, during, and after each soccer game. This research pretends to establish the social conditions of identity, gender and territory of the hoolingans, to understand the scheme and general composition and organization of each group, their scheme and general composition and organization.
