The article focuses on the issues concerning the increasing violence and racism linked with sport events. It states that the increase in violence often occur in stadiums, in which people are treating unfairly the visiting athletes. Such acts include dehumanizing racial and religious obscenities and labeling, such as abusive sexual remarks against women. Moreover, the impact of globalization on racism and xenophobia has resulted to international discourse concerning the cross-cultural understanding and dialogue around the world.
