Russia aims to stop hooligans

MANCHESTER, England -- Russia's World Cup leadership is hoping new laws will help prevent disorderly fans from marring the tournament in 2018.

A bill is going through the Russian parliament that would fine and suspend violent fans from matches for one to six months. The bill also carries a jail term and a one-year suspension for behavior that disrupts matches.

World Cup director Alexander Djordjadze acknowledges that hooliganism is a "big concern for the entire football family in Russia."

Addressing the SoccerEx conference in Manchester, Djordjadze says he hopes the new laws will "change the fan culture completely."
