Leaks from a neo-Nazi online forum shows there have been conversations amongst known football hooligans from Zurich Grasshoppers, FC Sankt Gallen and Bern Young Boys.

The Federal Police Office says they have noticed more contacts with international football fans.

An investigation by the newspaper SonntagsBlick shows conversations between fans congratulating each other for various violent actions.

A spokesman for the Young Boys football club says it has no knowledge of far-right networks and is against racism and discrimination of any kind.
