Football hooliganism[edit]

Riots have repeatedly broken out for the past years between supporters and fans of Jordan's top rival clubs Al-Faisaly and Al-Wahdat, which is also a Palestinian refugee camp in Amman. The riots are regarded as reflecting tensions between the Palestinian fans of Al-Wahdat and the Jordanian fans of Al-Faisaly.[1][2]
