10:30 – 12:30 – #EFFC WORKSHOPS SESSION #3

• WS 5: Fan.tastic Females Exhibition
MODERATION: Project coordination
Where there are books or interviews about a football fanbase, women are very rarely the ones telling the story. Likewise, female fans are hardly ever in the center of any legendary fan stories. Much more often, however, the absence of women inside the stands is an issue of both positive and negative comments in football. But is this really reflecting reality?
From March 2017 onwards, FSE members are taking on a unique exhibition project: about 40 people from 14 countries will do research, interviews, take photos, write and curate to tell stories and the story of female fans in Europe. In the end, there should be a touring exhibition with portraits of different women football supporters, their networks, actions as well as female fan clubs and female sections of ultra groups from various regions across the continent. From summer 2018 onwards, the exhibition is due to go on tour in various European countries. The exhibition will be made possible thanks to the help of the PFiFF project of the german Bundesliga foundation.
The project is aiming at showing the diversity of female fans inside the stands and tell their stories – about their strong, funny but also the less pleasant moments in football. And the workshop will support its implementation and the training of volunteers.

Accountability and transparency have rarely been more important tenants than in football today, and supporters have a crucial role to play in holding their clubs to the highest standards.
This session will hear from supporters in Belgium and from across Europe about their respective experiences, be it fan-owed clubs, groups pushing for improvements at their own football clubs or fans looking to begin a campaign and achieve better accountability.

13:30 – 15:30 – PLENARY #2: Safe standing
Mats Enquist (CEO Swedish League) | Pete Daikin (FSF) | Mary Dieleman (Front 282) | Michael von Praag (UEFA – TBC)
MODERATION: Christopher Pauer (Stadion Welt)
While the majority of supporters across Europe want to have the choice whether to sit or stand when attending a football match, standing at a football ground is still generally forbidden in “all-seater” stadiums due to national legislation or (international) competition regulations. These rules were introduced after a series of stadium disasters in the 1980s, most of which had nothing to do with standing. As a general consensus on the implementation of safe standing in European football is growing, this plenary session aims at discussing current trends in the development of safe standing, identifying remaining obstacles and building up recommendations for its wider implementation in Europe.
