El classico is one of the most famous and popular derbies in the world. However the real reason behind the rivalry is the fight for freedom of Catalonia.
Catalonia is a region in northeast part of Spain. Currently the region is fighting to become autonomous. Barcelona is one of the biggest cities in Catalonia as well as Spain.
Probably the biggest rivalry in Dutch football. Ajax is from Amsterdam while Feyenoord is Rotterdam based. Two important port cities for the Netherlands. Two cities are increasingly politically polarized where Rotterdam becomes more right wing, while Amsterdam is remaining liberal to socialist.
VAK410 is an ultrAs group for Ajax FC. One of the most interesting aspect for VAK410 is their chants that refer to Jews and the fact that they use a flag that has the Star of David on it.
When the spring is coming, we’ll be throwing
Bombs over Rotterdam,
Thousands of big ones and lots of casualties,
More dead than alive,
What the Luftwaffe don’t destroy,
The F-Side will

Cultural Rivalry

Panathinaikos comes from the centre of Athens and it lured more supporters who belong to the high class society where Olympiakos was founded in a port city thus attracting supporters from the worker class.
