There used to be a collection of figures and (I think) rules for this called "No Go Zone" from Warm Acre Games. However, I can't see much evidence of this on their current website, so perhaps my memory is faulty or maybe the range wasn't popular and was discontinued.

You could run a campaign game that kicks off after riots when the US loses to Canada in the Stanley Cup (see 2011 riots) that spills over to armed intervention & eventually an invasion (Shades of 1812, Batman!).

European football hooligans can carry a variety of weapons but rarely guns, so this has more potential.

Not to mention hockey fans might carry those clubs, bats, sticks: whatever you call those things they play with.

Ah – sports. So uplifting and brings out the finest human feelings in the shared thrills of the well played game. Win, Lose or draw – play up and play the game!

ochoin-
I didn't recall the event and had to look it up. The final game of the 2011 Stanly Cup was in Vancouver, BC. The riot occurred following the Vancouver Canucks loss of the final game and with it the series (to Boston). There were an estimated 100,000 people at the game and gathered outside the arena. 300+ people were charged with crimes related to the riot. That is going to be a lot of minis painting !!!

Winston,

If you want I can run a game of hooligans at Historicon for you. It is a fun little game. I will even let you run Milwall.

If you want actual soccer my dad is running a mini World Cup tournament. We are trying to figure out the final four teams. Brasil, Germany, Spain and … not sure.

T answer the original question YES!

The rules are called Aggro and they are published and the figures made by Aintsy Castings. RLBS carries them here in the states.

No, not rlbs but recreational conflict. Aggro Rules and figs.

Sorry bout referencing the wrong company. I know that you are the guy to go to for it.

MadBob Supporting Member of TMP26 Apr 2018 7:49 a.m. PST

Millwall? Who the Bleeped text are Millwall?
YID ARMY!!! =)
I found some figures that could pass for skinheads, punks, etc. But who makes proper Casuals figures? Painting SI badges on the sleeves would be a nightmare =)

jefritrout26 Apr 2018 12:32 p.m. PST

We have small firms painted up for –

Millwall
West Ham
Arsenal
and
The Spurs

That's 4 London based clubs.

how did you leave out Chelsea? Say what you will about them, as much as I hate them, they've always been tasty and always up for it.
I think I'm gonna do Rangers, scumtic, Hearts and hibs, possibly the Buddies as well.
Might do Linfield just to have them.

and I saw someone had done some Mods/Scooterboys. that adds a whole different dimension to it. Get a load of Mods and some rockers then redo Brighton Bank Holidays
