Football Supporters Europe (FSE) and Supporters Direct Europe (SD Europe) can confirm both organisations have formally begun operating as one organisation on 1st October 2022, beginning a bright new era in football supporters’ representation in Europe. This milestone fulfills the democratic will of the members of FSE and SD Europe, who voted in favour of a merger between the organisations at their respective BGM and AGM in July 2022.
The merged organisation, which retains the name ‘Football Supporters Europe’, will see the marrying together of both organisation’s key priorities, including the protection of supporters’ fundamental rights, safeguarding the future of European football, anti-discrimination, fan ownership and heritage, fans’ embassies, development of the supporter liaison officer role, and campaigns such as Europe Wants To Stand and the Win It On The Pitch ECI petition.
Football Supporters Europe (FSE) is coordinating a new European Citizens Initiative (ECI)—winitonthepitch.eu—that calls on the EU to protect the European model of sport, recognise the social value and specific nature of sport in European society, and involve fans in discussions to shape the long-term future of European sport.
A Fans’ Embassy is an advice, information, and support service for national team fans travelling to away games or international tournaments in a foreign country. There are currently 18 active embassies across Europe, all run by experienced fans or professional fan workers. Visit the official FSE Fans' Embassies website to find out more.
