The Swedish government recently introduced plans to bar known hooligans from football stadiums for up to three years with proposals to ban the use of face masks often worn by extremist supporter gangs.
The incident marked the second death in Sweden related to football hooligan violence -- a supporter died during fighting in Stockholm city centre in 2002 during a game between Gothenburg and Stockholm team AIK.
