Away fans in Italy imposed with ID cards

Soccer fans in Italy will have to obtain a special supporters card from their club to see their team play away from home next year.

"From January 1, soccer enthusiasts will only be able to follow their team away from home if they have the supporters card," Interior Minister Roberto Maroni told a news conference.

The government believes the initiative will make it easier to police matches and track down trouble makers, as part of their bid to combat hooliganism in Italian soccer.

Authorities already employ a range of measures to prevent trouble, including bans on away fans at high-risk games.
