Contro il calcio moderno! Against Modern Football!  

En sak som förenar ultrasgrupper och organiserade supportrar runt om i hela världen är en kritik mot vad som brukar beskrivas som ”den moderna fotbollen” – en utveckling där pengar styr allt mer, tv-tittare blir viktigare än ståplatspublik och eventarenor ersätter klubbarnas tidigare hem. 

I en serie samtal och föredrag under hösten undersöker vi den moderna fotbollen – från supportermakt i den cypriotiska andradivisionen till den stundande VM-turneringen i Qatar. 

ULTRA: SAMTAL – ULTRAS HAR MAKTEN
Vi har bjudit in representanter från ultrasgrupper i Cypern, Italien och Österrike som har en sak gemensamt. De har alla tagit över sina klubbar för att styra dem på ett nytt sätt.

Moderator: Sébastien Louis, ultras historian 

Sébastien Louis disputerade 2008 med en avhandling om italiensk ultraskultur. Sedan dess har han regelbundet publicerat artiklar om denna ungdomsrörelse och talat om ämnet vid konferenser i Europa, Asian och Afrika. Hans första bok Le Phénomène ultras en Italie publicerades 2006. Hans senaste bok, Ultras, les autres protagonists du football gavs ut 2017. Sedan 2014 har han samarbetat med ett antal internationella museer kring utställningar om fotbollssupportrar.

TALK: ULTRAS IN POWER
How can discontent and protest be transformed into practical and positive change? We have invited representatives from ultras groups in Cyprus, Italy and Austria who have one thing in common. They have all taken over their clubs to run them in new ways.

Moderator: Sébastien Louis

Sébastien Louis obtained his PhD in 2008 with a dissertation on ultra-supporters in Italy. Since then, he has regularly published articles on this youth movement and spoken on the subject at conferences in Europe, Asia and Africa. His first book Le Phénomène ultras en Italie was published in 2006. In 2017, he published the book Ultras, les autres protagonists du football.

PARTICIPANTS:

Andreas Fanidis (PAC Omonia, Cyprus)

PAC Omonia 1948 was created in July 2018 by the Gate 9 supporters of AC Omonia, as part of their protest against the sale of their club. Their desire has been reconnect the club with its social roots and history. The club started in the 5th division of Cypriot football and has now climbed to the 2nd division.

Fortunato Carparelli (Il Fasano siamo noi, Italy)

After two bankruptcies, and retrogradation to the Italian eight division, in 2016 the ultras of Fasano choose to take the destiny of their club in their own hands. Today, US Città di Fasano is playing in the Italian 4th division with a renewed connection to the city and its fans.

David Rettenbacher (Union`99 Ultrà Salzburg, Austria)

In 2005, a global energy drink company took over the club Austria Salzburg, founded in 1933, changed its name, colours, emblem, and stated that it was a new club without history. As a reaction, the ultras re-founded the old club. It started in the 7th division 2006 but has climbed the system and is currently playing in the 3rd division.
