This paper aims to answer the question of whether there are common characteristics of adolescents who join club fan groups on the basis of the data collected during the research conducted from 2012 to 2014 on the sample comprising of secondary school students from the territory of the Republic of Serbia from 12 cities that had first division football clubs in the 2012/2013 season. 3662 students were surveyed. The analysis of the collected data showed that a young member of a fan group could be described as a male adolescent who participated in clashes because of football, who was abused illicit drugs and who was apprehended by the police and against whom criminal charges for violence in football stadiums were filed.
