Last 19th of May, Eintracht Frankfurt fans were not only celebrating their club’s victory in the German Cup, but also their return to UEFA competitions after 5 years of absence. The first away game of Eintracht’s 2018-19 European campaign was meant to be a celebration, with thousands of fans following their team.

UEFA’s sanction against Olympique de Marseille casted a first shadow on Eintracht’s return, its supporters being the “collateral victims” of a disciplinary decision against the French club. By imposing OM to play its first home game behind closed doors, UEFA’s disciplinary body did not only punish tens thousands of local fans for the behavior of a few and the club’s failure to meet its obligations, but it also deprived Eintracht fans from their right to support their team. This stadium closure is nothing but a collective punishment and we are calling UEFA to put an end to these unfair measures.

Together they organised an extensive programme which allowed the participants to discover Spanish fan activism, discuss the common challenges faced by all away fans in Spain and exchanges good practices based on various European experiences.

Read more ...During the 2017-18 season, football supporters following their team abroad for UEFA Champions League or Europa League matches repeatedly suffered from excessive ticket prices. Over the course of the competitions, a number of clubs set, or attempted to set, prices for away supporters that breached the intent of Article 19 of the UEFA Safety & Security Regulations, which requires away supporters to be charged no more than home supporters seated in a comparable category.

This resulted in multiple cases when away fans had to pay more than double the effective prices for home supporters. RCS Anderlecht and FC Sevilla even reached the record price of 100EUR in the away sector. Regrettably, at least one case is already recorded this season for the forthcoming fixture between FC Valencia and Manchester United. These unfair, punitive prices raise concerns on the capacity of a growing number of dedicated football fans to follow their club abroad. The presence of those away fans in substantial numbers is a key part of the spectacle and atmosphere of UEFA Club Competitions.
