EFFC19 will be hosted in Lisbon from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th July by Associação Portuguesa de Defesa do Adepto (APDA), a national organisation that is currently protesting a new law that targets football supporters.

The EFFC takes place every other year and is the biggest gathering of active football supporters on the continent. More importantly, it is the only event where supporters can directly engage with the decisionmakers and major stakeholders of international football.

On the opening night, attendees will get a chance to see the Fan.tastic Females exhibition (venue TBC), an acclaimed showcase of female fandom and fan culture in Europe and beyond.

Friday and Saturday (Casa do Comércio) will be dominated by workshops and plenary sessions, with subjects as diverse as stadium renovation and UEFA’s human rights policy on the agenda. On the Saturday afternoon, the FSE Biennial General Meeting will give supporters an unprecedented opportunity to debate the most pressing issues of the day and influence our policy and priorities. Sunday will be a day to enjoy the sun and company.

We will share a more detailed agenda in the coming weeks.


Accomodations will be based in Gent and a shuttle bus to Lokeren will be provided on Saturday.

There are different ways to travel.

Lisbon offers a wide range of accommodation.

We are currently liaising with APDA to find suitable accommodation for attendees. We will publish a list of options as soon as possible. If you want to arrange the accommodation booking by yourself we would recommend the area of Marquês de Pombal since this is where the congress venue is situated.


Wednesday, 02 April 2014

Participation to the European Football Fans Congress is free of charge for all participants, including lunches and dinners on Friday and Saturday.

FSE welcomes donations from participating groups and individuals in order to support the organisation of the #EFFC, either on site or via FSE website.

Costs of travel and accommodation should be covered by participants themselves. Please check ACCOMMODATION for further info.

This European Football Fans Congress (#EFFC) is organised by fans for fans. We have a budget available for the organisation of this event from our regular budget but lots of costs need to be covered, whether for speakers, technical equipment for audio-visual support, printing of programme brochures, translation, cars for shuttle busses, visa cost support etc.

This is why we would be more than happy about any donations towards the congress as a solidarity contribution that could help to re-finance the event. Whether it is 1 euro or 10 or 100 - every little helps!
