La violence du Hooliganisme Européen est dérisoire à coté des Barra Brava Sud-Américaine.
Barra Brava is the name for organized South American supporters groups of football teams. This style of supporting is very similar to European ultras. It includes standing throughout the match, singing and other enthusiastic behavior. Some Barra Bravas have developed reputations for hooliganism. This term originated in Argentina in the 50's and 60's, but the term has spread throughout Spanish-speaking South America. In Brazil, the Torcida Organizada plays a similar role.
