Barra brava is a name for organized supporter groups of football teams in Latin America. This style of supporting is very similar to European ultras. It includes standing throughout the match, singing and other enthusiastic behavior. Some barras bravas have developed reputations for hooliganism. The phenomenon originated in Argentina and Uruguay in the 1950s and '60s, but it has spread throughout the Americas in the '90s. In Brazil, the organized torcida plays a similar role and in México both the term barras and porras are used.
