Particularly in Europe, Football is a game of high emotions; a game without parallels in the sporting world.
According to a recent study by The Social Issues Research Centre, who conducted research over almost 20 European countries, 80 percent of studied World Football fans believe that their presence has a direct effect on how the game is played.
The study report put it this way:
Football fans describe themselves as the 'twelfth man' — as essential to the success of the team as the players and coaching staff. It is the actions performed by fans during the game — the ritual chants, songs, banner waving, etc. — that motivates the team, intimidates the opposition players and perhaps even influences referees' decisions. The fans truly believe they must attend the game to 'help the team to win,' not just to observe the event.
