some time ago I asked why American Sport Fans are sooooooo boring and so far nobody was able to prove me wrong. So to clear things up for non-European users: Ultras are the diehard-fans of a football club. Not hooligans, but the ones with a lot of passion and the ones that create an atmosphere in a stadium you guys in NA just don't have. You really have to experience it.
There is an ongoing discussion between ultras, clubs and different unions about Flares / Bengalos. Flares are not allowed in a stadium and this is what some turkish ultras think of it.
superchunk said: I'd be pissed if I was watching a game and someone wanted to put a big ass sheet over my head. f-that. Just make a normal sign like everyone else.
you don't have to buy a ticket for the place where the best fans are (no clue about the name in english, in german we say "fankurve"), you can still buy a card for the seats with the boring fans just sitting there to watch the game
