A Day with Florida’s Only Football Hooligan

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description

Derek 'Diablo' Alvarez wants to transplant British hooligan football violence into America. After being enraptured by grainy 80s videos of football gangs beating the shit out of each other in pubs and movies like Green Street and The Football Factory, Diablo has launched his own squad "The Miami Casuals," defending a soccer team, Inter Miami CF, that doesn't exist yet.

VICE's Joel Golby flies out to sunny Miami to meet this icon of neo-hooliganism and his "casuals" in a bid to discover whether the US is the new site of football hooliganism.
