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

In Cyprus the ‘beautiful’ game of football is revered and enjoyed by thousands of genuine fans who follow their favoured teams with unrivalled passion. It is said that when you are born in Cyprus a number of things are pre-ordained – your Christian name, your religion, your politics and the football club you will follow for life. This book provides an insight to the love of the game in Cyprus but also articulates how a small, but violent minority, have in the past been engaged in organised attacks on their opponents and the police.
