Read more ...Football Supporters Europe (FSE) welcomes UEFA's recent announcement of the ticket prices for the 2012 Champions League final in Munich.

Last year, after public criticism and representations by FSE at our annual meeting with UEFA President Michel Platini, UEFA apologised for excessive prices at the 2011 final, and gave an undertaking to consult with FSE before this year's prices and pricing structure were finalised.

FSE is delighted that UEFA lived up to this commitment, and has indeed consulted FSE in the price-setting process.

The ticketing concept provided to FSE for our feedback already contained several improvements over the previous year. We are very pleased to announce that following our response to that document, UEFA has accepted the majority of the additional arguments we presented and incorporated them into the final pricing structure.

Read more ...As FSE Fans' Embassy Division, we noted that there have been unsavory incidents to date during Euro 2012, mainly occuring in Poland, and mainly confined to small groups.

Some Polish people were mobilising for counter-action after Russian fans had been involved in violent clashes with volunteer stewards after the Czech game on Saturday. On top of that, there was an official and approved march taking place by the Russians for their independence day across the river Vistula leading up to the game. This seems to have exacerbated the situation in connection with the emotional historical aspect interlinked with the symbolic encounter of the two countries at this football match.

The club management had raised prices for match tickets partially by more than 40%. For the first time in decades, the match in Gelsenkirchen against Dortmund wasn't sold out. More than 1500 tickets hadn't been sold and there was great national and international media coverage and everywhere in Germany, fans organized solidarity banners or choreographies. FSE has since supported the campaign as well.

Watching a football match and supporting your team inside the stadium is probably THE most essential means of expression of support for a football fan. But unfortunately in Turkey, this has now been collectively restricted, as usual with the argument of wanting to prevent violence. According to an agreement made between the four biggest clubs of the Turkish Super League - Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, Besiktas and Trabzonspor – all games taking place between the four will be played without away supporters for the entire rest of the 2011-12 football season.
