October 28, 1950 during the game against the hated "red Star" fans of Hajduk appropriated the nickname "Torsida". Interestingly enough, the emergence of "Torcida" did not lead to the immediate emergence of other similar groups. However, it is fair to note that by 1970, thanks to the visits Hajduk in various cities of Yugoslavia, including Croatia, fans of other clubs have become much more organized.
The Communist party of Yugoslavia ("the Union of Communists of Yugoslavia") in the fifties has banned the activities of Torcida, alarmed by the riots that split a support arranged in the matches against red Star; and one of the leaders of the movement, Venceslav have Juvela, was expelled from the Communist party and sentenced to three years imprisonment (served three months).
The first mass hooligan action of troublemakers from split is dated 1961, when in the away match against Sarajevo Croatian hooligans attacked the referee Alexander Skorich, remove one of the players of Hajduk.
In 1984, before the match Hajduk – Tottenham Croatian hooligans stabbed in the center of the field of a rooster, the symbol of the London club.
The disintegration of the country
Historical and ethnic contradictions, which ultimately led to the disintegration of Yugoslavia, began to have a significant impact on football long before the collapse of the political system. It has become quite common, when on the occasion of the arrival of the Serbian teams hooligans from the "Torcida" were reinforced by supporters of the teams of the lower divisions. By the end of the 80s, this trend has only strengthened, especially it was noticeable on the eve of the visits of the two most principled opponents of the Belgrade "Partizan" and "red Star".
Although the match Croatian fans in Belgrade has always been a dangerous event in the season 1987-1988, the situation became more strained. With the collapse of the Communist system, when the Serbian people began to think about creating their own state, visits "Torcida", reinforced by fans of other clubs have become common practice. Frankly, in such himself never refused and hooligans "red Star" and "Partizan".
In 1987, the members of "Torcida", revealing burnt in the Belgrade district Autokomanda, where based and Crvena Zvezda and Partizan, the national tricolor of Yugoslavia. These guys knew what awaits them terrible retribution. First, the militias silently, without interfering, and watched as the angry fans of Partizan beat guests from split rail fittings, and then entered the fray. Without touching any of the local fan, the police attacked the firmachi "Torcida" by staging a mass slaughter, followed by massive arrests.
After that, the team of Hajduk supported friendly forces soldiers of the Croatian "Bad Blue Boys", attacked in split mob guerrillas by staging the capital's guests shaped thrashing.
Participation of clubs in European competitions has always been a kind of outlet for fans. Therefore, the away games were always accompanied by the most active use now become traditional flags and pyrotechnics. In the same 1987 on the game against Marseille, the group of participants of the "Torcida" crept into the stands of the local fans and threw them in a bomb with tear gas, which led to riots in the stadium. Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt, but the fierce fight was forced to stop the game, and then UEFA decided to suspend "Hajduk" from participation in the European tournament.
A few months after the events in Maximise, in 1990 during the game against Partizan Belgrade, members of "Torcida" made another defiant swipe at the Serbs, when part of it broke the bullies on the football field below within Central circle pointedly to burn the state flag of Yugoslavia. Soon after the war broke out in 1991, former Yugoslavia was no more.
During the war at the front died 27 representatives of the company Torcida. Their names are engraved on a plaque mounted on the poljud stadium.
With the end of the war and the acquisition of Croatia's state independence had returned and the football, which was expecting a big change. Many of the previous leaders are gone and now stands a new youth, who had begun the restoration of the hooligan movement. Together with the emergence of new teams in the first division of the newly formed Croatian football League many fans of Dinamo and Hajduk from small towns to support local clubs. However, the protagonists still remained "bad blue boys and Torcida" who in the days of the most important matches could collect under the banners of more than 5 thousand fans.
Gradually Hajduk became the leader of Croatian football, than could not use the "Torsida". In Zagreb often came from two to ten thousand supporters of the team, whose security was provided by hundreds of police. In addition, they opened the vast horizons of the European, and the fans of Hajduk were able to attend the matches in Budapest, Lisbon, Amsterdam and Sofia.
