Developing a new generation of sport fans
Lead partner: Football fans association „The Gentlemen“ – Belgrade, Serbia

Serbia and wider region had passed through a turbulent period of political and
economic crises, which have had numerous negative impacts to whole society in
terms of increased violence, nationalism, hatred, social exclusion, lack of appropriate
education, etc. All these impacts were and, sadly, are still present, especially at the
sport stadiums and within the young population. Our idea is to tackle this societal
challenge by approaching the sensitive adolescent population which is most exposed
to these negative influences and to try to initiate a change through educational
trainings, raising awareness through revealing the causes of bad behaviors and
exchanging experiences on good practices.
The objectives we plan to achieve through these actions are:
-better understanding of the actual status and various negative and positive impacts
of sport-surrounding factors upon the target youth group achieved through the event
interaction and surveys, where we expect the support of our partners through their
viewpoints, analysis and experiences;
-sharing the positive experiences of our association with the young groups, enriched
with the guest sport professionals and practitioners participation at our presentations;
-building new international connections and basis for intercultural exchange between
our and our partners youth groups; introducing new format and style of
communication in sport-related environment.
The project result will be produced through 12 months-long interaction of NGO’s from
three countries, supported by experienced professionals in managing this kind of
projects and creating the educative program content and participation of real sport
fans who are sharing their interesting and educative experiences.
