World Class Player
Lemberg - The Galician Capital!
Teams: Karpaty & Arsenal
In terms of atmosphere, yes, they are... Especially during Dynamo/Shakhtar or Cup games... I Lviv people try to support like English (with songs) and Italians (flares/fireworks)... Of course it hasnt spread amongst all fans... Some still live in the old Soviet times, when supporting a team means coming to their games to to eat sunflower seeds and drink a beer/vodka. But slowly things are changing. Many football players and coaches agreed that when the national team played in Lviv (on 3 occassion) the atmosphere was fantastic and uncomparable to any other city.
P.S. In terms of fights, they are quite rare (if there are its probably between a bunch of drunkers), but this year the tension was very high in the Dyn-Kar games... No fights were recorded as far as I know (if you dont call a police beating of the visiting fans a fight), but few flares and bottles were thrown from Dynamo sectors into Karpaty's and vice versa...
