Read more ...Our members from the Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) are launching a major campaign, created by multi - award winning advertising creative Gerry Farrell Ink to give the fans the say in the best and worst of Scottish Football this season.

The SFSA wants to give its members the chance to decide on the big talking points for season 2015-16 and to find the fan of the year. SFSA is asking fans now to contact them with nominations of that fan who goes that extra mile just to support his club.

Like the FSF, SFSA is providing a range of categories, that already started to attract attention and fans will be asked for nominations across some more categories in April.

On 29 May an event will be held in Glasgow and will tour the country in subsequent years. On the event the lucky winners will be presented.

Read more ...Maybe you´ve experienced a situation like this before: over many weeks, you wait eagerly for the European draw of your team, you start planning your trip, you check out hostels, pubs, stadium rules, drinking laws and you realize that to be properly prepared for your football trip, you have to retrieve your info from loads of different places and platforms. And on top of that, most of the information is only available in a language you can´t even understand.

We are fed up with this, and this is why we have started to put together all relevant travel advice for football fans in one place, in our free FSE Fans Guide App. It is an independent not-for-profit project created and developed by fans, for fans. All information has been provided by fellow football fans in order to support each other.

FIFA still has to prove it is serious about dealing with human rights abuses and corruption linked to the World Cup. Not one of the organisation’s presidential candidates has either signed up to the full range of pledges presented to them by a group of leading NGOs ahead of the election next week (26 February), or articulated alternative measures that would effectively address the underlying issues.
