Communication as the most important Police Strategy at the Football World Cup Final 2006
2008 (English)Report (Other academic)
In 2006 a group of Swedish researchers from Linköping University observed a high- risk match during the Football World-Cup Finals in Germany. The match between Germany and Poland took place in Dortmund, and during the entire day observations were performed at different locations in the city [cf. Granström & Hylander (2008), Guvå & Rosander (2008), Hau & Näslund (2008)].
In this report, information is summarised that focuses on the strategies and tactics of the police in Dortmund for this match as well as for the entire World championship tournament. Data was gathered by interviews with police officers in Dortmund and Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The purpose of this presentation is to account for police strategies and considerations that resulted in a mainly peaceful and orderly major football event.
