FSE STATEMENT ON EUROPA LEAGUE KICK-OFF TIMES

After watching their team lose 1-0 to FC BATE Borisov in Belarus last week, Arsenal fans are now faced with the prospect of a 5:55pm kick-off for the return leg at the Emirates (London).

Such an early start means that many fans will find it difficult, if not impossible, to attend the game due to work and other commitments. This is, of course, a problem in and of itself, but it is compounded by the fact that season ticket holders have already been charged for the fixture.

JOINT STATEMENT ON OM/EINTRACHT AWAY TRAVEL BAN

Thursday, 20 September 2018
09:00

Last 19th of May, Eintracht Frankfurt fans were not only celebrating their club’s victory in the German Cup, but also their return to UEFA competitions after 5 years of absence. The first away game of Eintracht’s 2018-19 European campaign was meant to be a celebration, with thousands of fans following their team.

UEFA’s sanction against Olympique de Marseille casted a first shadow on Eintracht’s return, its supporters being the “collateral victims” of a disciplinary decision against the French club. By imposing OM to play its first home game behind closed doors, UEFA’s disciplinary body did not only punish tens thousands of local fans for the behavior of a few and the club’s failure to meet its obligations, but it also deprived Eintracht fans from their right to support their team. This stadium closure is nothing but a collective punishment and we are calling UEFA to put an end to these unfair measures.

FSE STATEMENT ON THE LATEST INDEPENDENT STUDY ON PYRTOTECHNICS

Last Monday (3rd of July 2017) UEFA published a report regarding the safety of using pyrotechnics inside football stadiums.

In 2016 Football Supporters Europe accepted an invitation from UEFA to take part in a working group on pyrotechnics. We regarded this involvement of a voice for football supporters as a welcome improvement on the previous practice of these discussions taking place over our heads and without fans´ participation.
