The concept of court It has Quechua origin. It is possible, according to linguistic experts, to distinguish between two etymological roots of the word: kamcha and kancha. In the first case, it refers to the roasted beans and at corn that the inhabitants of the South American region usually eat.

Instead, the word court inspired by kancha (translated as "enclosure" ) has a wider range of meanings. The term is used to refer to the space reserved for the practice of different sports or for the organization of shows. For example: "In a while I go to the field to watch Boca's game", “There are a lot of people on the River court because tonight there will be a rock festival”.

In a similar sense, it is known as a court terrain, surface or flat site , and at Corral of adequate proportions to deposit objects.

Court is also, in some countries , Synonym of racecourse . The term is used in relation to bets, on the other hand, to refer to the amount of money imposed by the owner of a gaming venue.

Another application of the court idea refers to the site on which the channel of a certain river becomes wider .

Finally, we can mention that court is the ability that one person acquires from experience. In this sense, it constitutes a kind of informal knowledge (not systematized) that arises from living certain situations: “My father has a lot of court in these matters”, “After living ten years in Africa, I have a field to handle certain situations”, "Martin lacks court to achieve success in a similar position".

The hooligan or white bars

The term hooligan derives from the surname of a man who made history for his absolutely despicable behavior and is used as a synonym for vandal or brave bar. Edward Hooligan was of English origin and lived in the second half of the 19th century in London. He was a deranged, disrespectful, irresponsible person and used to participate in street fights.

his lazy and provocative attitude it led him to start confrontations with anyone who disagreed with him or his way of acting, which consisted mainly of the leisure Absolute and excessive alcohol consumption. It was not long before others imitated their tendencies, undermining public order and intimidating people with their aggressiveness and appearance, inside and outside the soccer fields.

This movement spread rapidly through other European countries, such as Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, although it also crossed the ocean to reach Argentina. At world of the year 66, many matches took place in real battlefields.

Some of these bars came to have names, although from the point of view of those who have suffered them, the word hooligans is enough to encompass them. During these unfounded clashes, the level of aggressiveness has become very high, even causing deaths. In the year 85, during a match between the Liverpool and Juventus teams, the number of fatalities was 39 people. As a result of this unfortunate event, UEFA authorities expelled England from the European Championship until 91.

However, the riots did not end there. In the year 97, the Hillsborough Stadium was stage of 95 dead and more than 200 injured during the English Cup final. Despite the security measures, which have gone from arrests to denying England to host the World Cup in 2006, violence on the soccer fields seems to be an integral part of the matches, which less and less symbolize a sporting event
