Nikos and Nicole introduce themselves.

For almost one year now, the FSE Coordinating Office has seen two new members of staff supporting the FSE membership and all its entities, working groups and projects with all these little bits and bops and logistics in the background that one usually hardly recognizes but without which, FSE couldn’t work anymore, as a steadily growing organisation.

We now thought that it’s about time to introduce them a little more to all of you who don’t know them already, to make sure you know the faces behind one or the other email or phone call you may receive. :)

Things are getting really serious: a paper called "Sicheres Stadionerlebnis" (Safe Stadium Experience) elaborated by the “Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL, German Football League) is due to be voted on at the general meeting of the 36 German professional clubs on 12 December 2012. This summer, the German Home Secretary Hans-Peter Friedrich had urged the German football clubs to make a higher contribution to increase safety and security in stadia. He called for this on the basis of an allegedly increased level of violence in German football. However, this allegation is not underlined by any statistics or other scientific findings.

A first version of the paper was rejected by numerous clubs because they wanted to discuss it with their supporters first. As a result, a second version of the paper was worked out, which now - according to the DFL - should be passed by the clubs who fear that politics will otherwise threaten the autonomy of football. Various politicians had very recently increased the pressure towards the DFL and called for a quick decision and measures to be taken.

The Committee members of FSE, European’s leading supporters’ organisation, were disappointed by the announcement of UEFA’s decision to hold Euro 2020 in up to 13 different countries all across the continent under the motto “EURO for Europe”.

Just last week, a delegation of FSE representatives gave UEFA representatives feedback from a fans perspective. In the build-up before that meeting FSE gathered the opinions from their wider membership and football supporters beyond that and collected feedback from a cross-section of supporters, to get a representative sample.

The FSE member and national fans association FASFE have launched a campaign on kick-off times to achieve better conditions for fans and families in Spanish football

As FSE, we're hereby documenting the latest news from our members from the Football Supporters Federation (FSF), the national fans' federation from England and Wales, on their important Safe Standing Campaign:

Peterborough United chief executive Bob Symns has given his backing to the Football Supporters’ Federation’s (FSF) Safe Standing Campaign. Symns even offered to use the club’s London Road ground to trial safe standing areas if Parliament and the football authorities would authorise it.

 

Symns made the announcement before the Posh’s friendly match at home to Aston Villa on Wednesday 1st August 2012. In a neat twist Villa’s chief executive Paul Faulkner is another supporter of safe standing.
