Football and War – The Secret Life of Syrian Ultras

Whilst we’re still on lockdown and unable to get out and film any new docs, we’re going to be re-posting a few classics from the archives.

Next up is this incredible story of the secret life of Syrian Ultras…

In a world turned upside down, Syria’s ultras feel like something familiar. A reminder that we are all bound by our love for this game, and the joy of following our local teams. Football is exactly the same for them as it is for everyone else, but in such a deeply fractured society, the stands yearn for a healthier form of Rivalry.
