The Real Football Factories International – The Balkans
In his trip to the Balkans, Dyer visits both Croatia and Serbia who fought one of the bloodiest wars in recent European history. A war which some believe began with the riot between fans of (Croatian club) Dinamo Zagreb and (Serbian club) Red Star Belgrade in May 1990. In Croatia he attends the biggest derby in their footballing calendar, Hajduk Split vs Dinamo Zagreb in Split.
He then sets off on a road formerly known as the Highway of Brotherhood and Unity into Serbia, where he gets rejected by Red Star Belgrade’s fans Delije who refuse to appear on the programme, but manages to meet Partizan Belgrade’s hardcore Grobari (the Grave Diggers) ultras. Exclusive access is seen of a Grobari party, which involves food, drink, drugs, karaoke, and guns. One of the songs featured in this episode is AC/DC’s Back in Black when showing highlights of the Grobari party. Dyer is also on hand for the Belgrade derby between FK Partizan and Red Star, both the football as well as the basketball one.
