Atmosphere groups

This is a new area of work for the FSA but we are keen to support the development of atmosphere groups and will seek to establish a network so that like-minded groups can share ideas and experience.

Many younger supporters form or join such groups to drive the atmosphere in our stadiums, making them the noisy and (in the nicest possible way!) intimidating venues that they should be for opposition players.

But there are often hurdles for such groups to clear, whether that’s adhering to fire safety legislation when producing banners and displays, or engaging with their club who might view them with suspicion, or the authorities who see them as a security risk.

It doesn’t have to be like this though, and the FSA is keen to work with atmosphere groups to look at how it’s done in different parts of the country.
