Read more ...On 16 March, the annual meeting of the FSE Committee with UEFA took place, together with our partners Supporters Direct Europe and Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE). Whilst progress was made and joint actions were discussed with regards to nominative ticket schemes and travel restrictions, we had to register that UEFA  was still unwilling to move even an inch in its position on collective punishments of fans.

The FSE Committee is still missing a sign of understanding from UEFA for the fact that punishing fans that haven’t done anything wrong whatsoever, is unjust, doesn’t meet judicial principles and is hence counter-productive to motivating fans in the important commitment against racism.

Read more ...Human rights, labour standards and anti-corruption measures must be central to all stages of the Olympic Games to stop the event becoming a byword for oppression, the Sport and Rights Alliance (SRA) said today ahead of a key meeting of the International Olympic Committee this week. 

The IOC Executive Committee will meet in Rio from 26-28 February to discuss implementation of Agenda 2020, its “strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement”, passed in December last year. The Agenda includes anti-discrimination measures, labour standards and proposals to improve transparency and promote good governance.

The federation of Danish Football Fan Clubs (DFF) – Danske Fodbold Fanklubber – is a Danish umbrella organization for Danish supporters and members of FSE. This week the DFF launched a campaign against mandatory “away cards” – a proposal the Danish League Association have made due to safety and security concerns. So why is the DFF fighting this decision?

The background for the decision goes back to 2012, where a match on March 3rd between Aalborg Boldklub and FC Copenhagen made media headlines, with lots of pyro and almost riot looking footage from the away section. The Ministry of Justice, the Danish FA, the police, the clubs and the fans then came together, and agreed to work on a plan to secure better football experiences for everyone. In the joint plan a “common entry system” was suggested as a possible action point. Ever since then the focus in Danish security aspects has been on dialogue. Police are being trained as special event police and using dialogue as a tool; SLOs are being introduced in the Danish Super League and an ongoing dialogue and cooperation is happening with the supporters.

In the light of effects of disciplinary sanctions imposed with matches behind closed doors just played at Steaua Bucharest vs Aalborg and CSKA Moscow vs Bayern Munich on thousands of innocent supporters, FSE urges UEFA to reconsider its disciplinary regulations. As Football Supporters Europe (FSE), we believe that the new, toughened regulations seeking to combat racism are more likely to be harmful than effective in the long run for the fight against discrimination in football.
