‘Violence In The Sun’ – a history of football-related violence in Cyprus

Cyprus is a beautiful island in the Mediterranean which looks east and west from its pivotal location. Sunshine, beautiful beaches and amazing scenery yet beneath the surface has lurked a problem over the years which has troubled the vast majority of Cypriots who love the ‘beautiful’ game – that of football violence. This book explores the history of violent confrontations between a minority of ‘supporters’ from a relatively small number of high-profile clubs, as well as the links to politics. An insight into a problem which has been more familiar to the streets of the UK and how the Republic of Cyprus police and Government have tried to curtail it.
