Fans at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and this year’s Confederations Cup in Russia will need special identity cards to watch matches.

This is part of FIFA’s efforts to curb football hooliganism.

The act had appeared to be waning at major tournaments, has again become a serious concern after Euro 2016 in France.

Russia were handed a suspended disqualification by UEFA and fined 157,000 dollars after their fans were involved in violent clashes with England supporters before a group game in Marseille.
