THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Aims to counter bad publicity

GermanyA new campaign to highlight how safe fans feel at matches in Germany has been launched. Schwatzgelb.com, one of the largest fanzines in Germany, has launched the "I feel safe" initiative to counter the increasing number of discussions about violence that they feel are wrongly damaging perceptions of football in the country. The list of people who have signed up is already nearing 40,000 and they are also asking English people who travel to Bundesliga games to share their views.
