Football Hooliganism

足球流氓 

May 19, 1985 saw Hong Kong’s historic 2-1 victory over China in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers. As China was eliminated from the competition, the red-clad Chinese players sat on the pitch weeping tears in the rain, while the fans in Beijing Workers’ Stadium burst into anger, creating what is generally considered the first serious incident of violence in Chinese football history. The saddest loss, known simply as “5-19”, triggered China’s football hooliganism.
1985年5月19日,世界杯外围赛,中国香港队历史性的2-1战胜了中国国家队。再次与世界杯无缘的中国队队员,坐在球场上痛哭流涕,泪水和雨水打湿了他们鲜红的球衣。在北京工人体育场看球的无数怒不可遏的北京球迷,制造了中国足球史上第一次大规模的暴力事件。这一次悲伤的失利,后来被称为“519”事件,引发了中国足球流氓的产生。
In recent years, China’s football world has been no better than China’s stock market, another arena that denies fair play. Faked matches, black whistles (corrupt referees), betting on games and other ugly phenomena make China’s football matches more like a “war” in which athletes are hostile to each other and fans act the same way. Angry fans were openly hostile to the visiting team, hurled bottles and pieces of garbage to referees or players of the visiting team, or expressed their grievances by attacking people and vehicles.
这些年来,中国的足球界已经成了个烂摊子,比起同样一团糟的中国股市好不到哪里去。假球、黑哨(裁判受贿)、赌球以及其他一些列丑恶事件,使得中国球市就像一场由球员参与的战争。与此同时,球迷的行为也越来越激化,他们对客场作战的队伍怀有敌意,对裁判和球员扔瓶子扔垃圾,或者是砸车打人来发泄不满。
Such misbehaving audiences have already turned up in many places of China. Football hooliganism also leads to hooliganism in other sports, like basketball. Following the growing incidence of violence in China’s sports grounds, China will “strike hard” against football hooliganism. Offenses listed include setting off fireworks or firecrackers, displaying insulting slogans, mobbing the referee or the players, throwing things on the pitch, and “other activities disturbing the order of the match”. Football hooligans will get the “red cards” to be held for up to five days and fined as much as 200 yuan (US$25). Hooligans sentenced to detention can also be barred from watching matches in stadiums for a period of one year.
这种没素质的观众在中国各地都可以见到。足球的暴力化似乎也带动了其他一些运动,比如说篮球。随着不断出现的球场暴力事件,国内开始着手大力打击足球流氓。烟花爆竹现在被视作违禁物品不得带入场内,不得使用含侮辱球员、裁判内容的标语,不得乱扔杂物入场内,以及其他任何影响比赛正常进行的行为。在球场上生事者也会得到红牌处罚拘留五日并处罚款200元。被处拘留的人还会被禁止观看比赛一年。
