This stuff is very common in Russia. My mother even used to do this kind of crap back in her youth. Mostly neighboring towns fighting each other. You’ll notice the spartak shirts. Sports team.
Rather than a no rules street fight, the battle takes places according to very specific rules. It is sort of like Pride Rules. In the woods. With seven fighters per side:
Wraps or MMA gloves are worn;
There are referees, who use sticks to get their point across;
The refs enforce rules, the most obvious of which is when someone quits, you can’t beat on them any more;
There are soccer kicks and head stomps;
Submissions are attempted;
A number of the participants use guard and attempt submissions;
No one dies;
Everyone shakes hands at the end.
The fight is between supporters of two Russian soccer clubs, Spartak Moscow (in white) and CSKA Moscow in Russia (black). In a display of feminine badassery, A Spartak supporter, who happens to be female, engages in this dust up with no care by anyone involved that she happens to have female body parts. She takes as much punishment as the males in the crew, and delivers as much punishment as anyone, too.
The phenomenon of soccer violence can be traced back to 14th-century England. Tt that time, soccer was a violent, unruly activity involving rival villages kicking a pig’s bladder across the local heath.
In 1314, Edward II banned “football” because he believed the disorder surrounding matches might lead to social unrest, or even treason. Conflict at an 1846 match in Derby, England, required a reading of the “riot act” and two groups of police squads to effectively respond to the disorderly crowd. “Pitch invasions” were a common occurrence during the 1880s in English soccer.
The first recorded instances of soccer hooliganism in the modern game occurred during the 1880s in England, a period when gangs of supporters would intimidate neighborhoods, in addition to attacking referees, opposing supporters, and players. In 1885, after Preston North End beat Aston Villa 5–0 in a friendly match, both teams were pelted with stones, attacked with sticks, punched, kicked and spat at. One Preston player was beaten so severely that he lost consciousness and press reports at the time described the fans as “howling roughs”. The following year, Preston fans fought Queen’s Park fans in a railway station—the first alleged instance of football hooliganism outside of a match. In 1905, a number of Preston fans were tried for hooliganism, including a “drunk and disorderly” 70-year-old woman, following their match against Blackburn Rovers.
The phenomenon only started to gain the media’s attention in the late 1950s due to the re-emergence of violence in Latin American soccer. In the 1955–56 English football season, Liverpool and Everton fans were involved in a number of incidents and, by the 1960s, an average of 25 hooligan incidents were being reported each year in England. The label “football hooliganism” first began to appear in the English media in the mid-1960s, leading to increased media interest in, and reporting of, acts of disorder. It has been argued that this in turn created a ‘moral panic’ out of proportion with the scale of the actual problem.
Soccer hooliganism has become prevalent in Russia since the beginning of the 1970s, and Russian hooligans are among the most notorious in the world.
