RESPECT Fan Culture – Fans‘ Embassies
At Football Supporters Europe we believe that fans are the lifeblood of the football world and need to be looked after and cared for. The most experienced members of the FSE Fans’ Embassies Division have been organising Fans’ Embassies for nearly two decades. At EURO 2012, FSE will run Fans’ Embassy services in all eight host cities under the motto “by fans for fans” with the aim of promoting positive and peaceful fan culture and thus contributing to a celebratory atmosphere at EURO 2012.
50% of all disabled Europeans have never participated in leisure or sport activities. EURO 2012 provides an opportunity to improve access to football and for the removal of physical, sensory and intellectual barriers in public places in the region. It is recognised that supporting and playing football is an integral and vital part of european culture and tradition. Football is increasingly diverse; this naturally includes many more disabled people. The Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) has formed a disability alliance in the region to help deliver the awareness project, RESPECT Inclusion – Football with No Limits.

EURO 2012 offers a unique chance to promote a positive message of diversity and inclusion. This programme will be delivered on behalf of FARE by the long established regional partner, the ‘Never Again’ Association. Civil society organizations, and ethnic minorities in particular, have been motivated to engage with the preparations. Important stakeholders have signed up to the anti-discrimination agenda. The FARE activities concentrate on minimizing the risk of racist incidents during the tournament, as well as the promotion of anti-discrimination measures.
