Football Group

What? - Sectarianism at football is when two rival sets of fans start fighting or arguing with each other about their clubs and the religion they are associated with.

Sectarianism ties in with football especially in Glasgow, for example Celtic and Ranger Football Clubs are the two biggest football rivals, with fans that either just go to the matches to watch and then the ones that only go to stir up trouble.

What PYP does? - One of the initiatives at Parkhead Youth Project is the 2become1 football project, where young people get to train with Celtic and Rangers Football coaches and learn about the different forms of sectarianism.
