States oppose hooliganism at sports events in various ways. The entities that can be involved in solving this problem are sports federations and clubs, but their role is not much considered in professional literature. For the purposes of this paper, an analysis of 388 delegate reports from the matches played by FC Red Star was performed from the season 2010/2011 to 2018/2019 in addition to 94 decisions to punish FC Red Star by the disciplinary bodies of the FSS and UEFA. The results of the conducted research indicate that, in practice, the disciplinary sanctions imposed by UEFA gave better results in relation to, in our opinion, inadequate sanctions imposed by the disciplinary bodies of the Football Association of Serbia (FSS).
