Summary/Abstract: A study concerning the public and private identity of young fans, including girls, during football manifestations and in everday life in Greece. A cross-cultural comparison of young fans in Greece, as studied directly and England, as revealed in the literature, proves the importance of the cultural factors in the formation of self-identity. The phenomenon of violence sometimes expressed seriously during the games and sometimes lived as fun determines many aspects of the personality of young fans.
