One fan of Medellin-based soccer side Atletico Nacional died and two were injured in a violent clash with fans of Independiente Medellin Sunday.
The violence took place on a highway in Caldas, a department south of Antioquia, of which Medellin is the capital.
According to local police, Nacional fans from Caldas, on their way home after Saturday's game, were spotted by Medellin fans who were on their way home from Cali, where the team had played against America.
The Medellin fans attacked Nacional fans with knives, resulting in the death of one.
Police apprehended both buses with fans to find out who exactly are responsible for the attack. (28.09.2009)
Hooligans who commit violence during soccer matches should be punished as terrorists, a Colombian coalition Representative proposed on Monday.
Juan Carlos Granados, Representative for coalition party Cambio Radical, asked Congress to amend the country's 'Crimes against Public Order' bill and punish acts of violence or disturbance associated with sporting events with jail sentences up to 15 years and fines between US$250 thousand and US$2.5 million.
Colombian football matches are regularly disturbed by riots or fighting between fans. colombiareports.com

The Two Escobars
LOS 2 ESCOBAR (ENG subtitles) Pablo Escobar was the richest, most powerful drug kingpin in the world, ruling the Medellin Cartel with an iron fist. Andres Escobar was the biggest soccer star in Colombia. The two were not related, but their fates were inextricably - and fatally - intertwined. Pablo's drug money had turned Andres' national team into South American champions, favored to win the 1994 World Cup in Los Angeles. It was there, in a game against the U.S., that Andres committed one of the most shocking mistakes in soccer history, scoring an "own goal" that eliminated his team from the competition and ultimately cost him his life.
THE TWO ESCOBARS is a riveting examination of the intersection of sports, crime, and politics. For Colombians, soccer was far more than a game: their entire national identity rode on the success or failure of their team. Jeff and Michael Zimbalist's fast and furious documentary plays out on an ever-expanding canvas, painting a fascinating portrait of Pablo, Andres, and a country in the grips of a violent, escalating civil war.

Por que los del Holocausto Norte tienen simbolos de la cruz celta que significa "orgullo blanco". Es una alusion a los colores del club?

Santa Fe /BOGOTA/

I'm going in the end of June and for July to Colombia. In the calendario I've seen that at this time is the second stage of Apertura and the two finals. I know it will depend on which clubs will go to this phase, but will it be possible to get tickets for the matches of the big clubs (Santa Fe, Millonarios, Deportivo Cali and the two clubs from Medellin) and how much is it?
I guess the clubs I've named have the best barra bravas or are there some other good scenes? How is it about away-fans, do they travel in big numbers?
I hope somebody can help me and I'm also open for some other tips for Colombia.
