testThe FSE Summer Network Meeting 2018 is just over and we are already focusing on our biennial European Football Fans Congress (EFFC).

The EFFC of Football Supporters Europe (FSE) takes place every second year and is the biggest gathering of football fans of its kind, and the only event where they can regularly exchange views with decision-makers and stakeholders in international football.

It also features panels, workshops and network meetings to discuss topics that are important to fans across Europe to have a say on the agenda of international football.
FSE is now calling for applications from its member organisations to host the next edition of the EFFC, which will take place in July 2019. Manifestations of interest should be submitted to FSE via info@fanseurope.org before 15 October 2018 (reference: “EFFC 2019”). Applicants will receive further information on the bidding process, the budget and the support provided by FSE.

Applicants are invited to present a draft concept for the event and outline the following information:

1. List of the hosting organisations and local/national partners
2. Preferred dates
3. Access/transport to the host city
4. Potential venue
5. Accommodation offer
6. Potential number of volunteers
7. Draft social programme

The FSE Committee will evaluate the bids during its November 2018 meeting and visit the shortlisted venues. The EFFC 2019 host will be announced in December 2018.
