There they had the opportunity to learn more about the socio preventive fan work of the Polish fan project with the local supporters around a match day. Matthias Stein, the head of Fanprojekt Jena, was impressed by the hospitality, the fan house and the quality of the support,
“We had an interesting look at the work of the Kibice Razem Wroclaw and inside the fan-scene of WKS. Our impression is that the fan project has very good prerequisites to work successfully in the next years. A nice “Fan House”-location in the city-centre and employees with a high motivation and very good knowledge about the scene and the club. There seemed to be good cooperation with the club management and the safety and security authorities.When the colleagues from Hannover needed help, you could directly talk to the security-manager and gave Hannover the information they needed. The cooperation with the supporters association and the disabled supporters makes sense.
We were of course deeply impressed by the emotional support of the WKS-supporters. Mostly well-known melodies but with such an intensity. It seemed they’re supporting not only with their voices but also with every piece of their hearts!“
The long-standing and experienced fan project Jena supports and assists the younger fan projects from Wroclaw and Salzburg in several study visits. The study visits are organised in the framework of the EU-project „pro supporters – prevention through empowerment“ that is lead and coordinated by FairPlay and supported by the European Commission in the field of prevention of and fight against violence and intolerance in sport.
