The Cardiff City Soul Crew (Commonly known as the Soul Crew) are a notorious football hooligan firm associated with the Welsh football club, Cardiff City. Over the past decade the Soul Crew have become one of the biggest and most active football firms in the United Kingdom.
The Soul Crew name was adopted by hooligan followers of Cardiff City in the 1970s. It comes from the small number of aspirant skinhead hooligans that had an enthusiasm for soul music. They were featured in the 2002 documentary series, Hooligans on BBC.
11 suspected members of the Soul Crew were detained before the start of an FA Cup replay against Reading at Ninian Park in February 1998. Riot police had to be drafted in at the end of the game to prevent further outbreaks of violence.
