Self-regulation of football fans

The project focuses on the fans‘ existing competences of self-regulation and de-escalation strategies used by football fans (before and after the match, in the football stadium etc.).

In group discussions with football fans they reflect on their own experiences in dealing with critical situations.

With our results, we want to provide advisory support for football fans, social workers as well as football clubs.

This project is supported by DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga) and DFB (Deutscher Fußball-Bund).
