Football Supporters Europe is one of eleven partners of the Erasmus+ project LIAISE which recently kicked off in Prague / Czech Republic.

Football bodies, clubs and national supporters organisations from eight European countries are part of SD Europe’s latest Erasmus+ project, focusing on the development of the supporter liaison officer (SLO) role.

This unique collaborative partnership brings together football authorities and supporters and will last until 31 December 2019. LIAISE is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and is co-financed by UEFA.

The European football governing body is also one of the project partners of the two-year partnership. Further partners are supporters, football associations, football leagues and stakeholders including the EU Think Tank of Football Safety and Security Experts.

The project encourages football authorities and other partner agencies involved with match day activities to recognise the value of enhanced dialogue and communication between all relevant stakeholders, particularly club supporter liaison officers (SLOs) and the football and public authorities.

The follow-up project of two previous EU-funded projects on Good Governance in sport highlights the supporter liaison officer (SLO) role with its extraordinary potential in this regard by acting as a conduit or focal point for increased dialogue and more open communication with all stakeholders.

Ronan Evain (FSE): “We are delighted to be part of this promising project and are convinced that it will be decisive in the further development of the SLO role in European football. We also hope to see more synergies between SLOs and supporters organisations arise from the LIAISE project.“
