Fan Activism

Fan Activism is simply the act of football fans getting together over some common ground and standing up for their rights. Using the #FanActivism hashtag we want to see examples of football fans coming together, putting their club-differences aside and actually working together to achieve a common-goal. Fans often get given a bad name but on this section of FootyBlog.net we want to show the more genuine side of fans – whether that’s pulling together to raise money for a worthy cause, trying to prevent football clubs over-pricing their tickets, or helping to prevent newspapers printing untrue or offensive material.


So get involved here if you’re looking to stand-up for some worthy football causes, and don’t forget to get in touch with us if you need help getting your cause heard amongst your fellow football fans.
