The main theme of this paper is to show the impact of the phenomenon of moral panic in the legislative process in the case of the Law on Prevention of Violence at sporting events. With the help of the constitutive elements of moral panic by Erich Goode and Nachman Ben-Yehuda, we tried to identify this phenomenon and show the social context in which the law has developed. Violence at sporting events is a phenomenon that causes a severe reaction from society. To demonstrate the persistence of moral panic in society as a reaction to the violence we have given above display of individual actors crucial to the functioning of moral panic as the media, politicians, action groups and the public. In addition, we have tried to show how the particular moral panic affected the law. As a method by which we want to achieve certain goals in this paper we have used the analysis of various materials such as daily newspapers, online portals, videos, legislation, court decisions, declarations of official government agencies and others. Results showed that after certain incidents at sporting events, leads to the formation of moral panic largely under strong pressure from the media, and then the politicians are taking concrete action to calm the situation. These actions are referred to the emergency amendments, which since its inception has changed three times, and after every amendments sanctions are increased, and the law became increasingly repressive and restrictive.
