Ultras and their violent practices have been, for some time now a subject of research of various scientific fields. The same phenomenon is the subject of everyday polemics in the public sphere. In this work I tried to explain ultras' violent practices and put them in the context of perceptions from ultras who themselves stem from the ultras group Bad Blue Boys Zagreb. By using the method of semistructured problematic interviews on the targeted group and the participant observation method, I compared ultras' violent practices of Bad Blue Boys with the equal practices of other ultras groups in Europe. I have also implemented the original concept of „the ultras game“ in an endeavour to appropriately cover the structure and course of ultras' violence. In this paper I suggest that a new field of research of ultras' groups should be opened because the key processes that are currently going on are exerting influence on the creation of a new ultras' paradigm.
