Fans' Embassy-project at UEFA EURO 2012
UEFA’s Respect Fan Culture project will support football fans throughout next summer's finals. With the collaboration of Football Supporters Europe (FSE), fan embassies will be set up in the eight host cities to serve as places where fans can seek assistance with last-minute travel and accommodation arrangements as well as aid in unforeseen circumstances. Supporters of participating countries will also have their own mobile fan embassies (12 teams) that will move from stadium to stadium. Fan guides and fanguide maps in 15 different languages will be produced.
This international Fans' Embassy project is organised by FSE - Football Supporters Europe.
