Last weekend a group of fans travelled to Borussia Dortmund to view the safe standing facilities on offer at the Westfalenstadion, and to speak to fan leaders and club employees about the relationship between the club and its supporters.

The group, organised by The Safe Standing Roadshow, included representation from The FSF and our friends at Supporters Direct, and consisted of supporters, fan group leaders and club officials who were representative of clubs in all four of England’s professional leagues.

They were lucky enough to be able to watch Dortmund’s last league match of the season against Hoffenheim from the rail seating of the famous Yellow Wall, as well as meeting with Marcus Quambusch from the Kein Zwanni ticket pricing campaign, the head of Dortmund’s The Unity ultras group, Rolf-Arnd Marewski from the Dortumund Fan Projekt and Jens Volcke, the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer.

The Barclay End Projekt, a collective of supporters on the Barclay End at Norwich City’s Carrow Road stadium, were part of the delegation of fans who travelled to Dortmund, and they’ve produced a detailed report of the weekend which you can read on the Barclay End Projekt website.
