The FSE Committee and staff gathered this week in Gent and Lokeren (Belgium) for their spring meeting and a site visit for the European Football Fans Congress 2017 (#EFFC2017).
The 9th edition of the #EFFC2017 will take place in both cities from 6 to 9 July 2017.
During the two days the Committee was given feedback on the overall administration, the existing projects and especially the ongoing preparations for the #EFFC2017. Furthermore, Committee and staff members took the opportunity to visit the venues of the congress in both cities and to meet the hosts from Supportersfederatie KAA Gent and Front282 Lokeren for an exchange of ideas and plans for the event.
On Thursday, KAA Gent’s Ghelamco Arena was explored and a meeting with officials from the club was arranged. On Friday a visit of the second venue, Daknamstadium Lokeren was on the agenda.
FSE Committee member and representative of the Supportersfederatie KAA Gent Dirk Vos concluded: ”We are looking back on two very productive days, not only giving us an overview of the current activities of the coordinating staff but especially on our upcoming congress. After having seen the venues and having met our dear hosts, the FSE Committee is confident that the participants will experience another event to remember.”
