testFSE Committee members and staff were on site visits in Gijón (Spain) and St. Pölten (Austria) for the FSE Summer Network Meeting (SNM) during the last few days.

In order to find the venue for the 2018 edition of the Summer Network Meeting, two FSE delegations visited the applicants, Wolfbrigade St. Pölten and UNIPES from Gijon. During their visits they met the local organizing team, checked the logistic possibilities as well as the venues where the meeting would be held.

Both cities have solid arguments to host the SNM, with very committed volunteers. Sharing an industrial history, Gijón and St. Pölten are perfect summer destinations: Gijón as a seaside city at the Gulf of Biscaya in Asturia and St. Pölten as a small town in Lower Austria, just about 65 kilometres west of Vienna.

Since 2015 and the establishment of a biennial Congress, members of Football Supporters Europe are gathering every other year for an event organised by the membership and supported by FSE.

The first Summer Network Meeting took place in July 2016 in Izmir (Turkey) and was hosted by our members from TARAFTAR HAKLARI DERNEGI and TarafDer. A quite legendary weekend for all participants. The format of the Summer Network Meeting is open, local hosts having all liberties in the organisation. The programme should just offer sufficient room for discussions on the most pressing topics for European football fans at the moment.
