The Frente Atlético is one of the most high profile ultra fan groups across the Football landscape in Spain. Their members miss the historic home of Atleti the famous Vicente Calderon, but they are slowly finding home in the brand new Wanda in the east ide of Madrid. The right-leaning Frente Atlético ultras share a friendship with Gol Sur from Real Betis. This design is very creative and well executed, and the bear that is the symbol of Madrid city makes for an excellent subject of this Aufkleber.
A less than chivalrous design brought to you by somebody who is clearly a Denver Broncos fan (NFL in case you were wondering). We cannot say we are fans of the…. theme of this Aufkleber, but the colours contrast well in spite of its vulgarity. Moreover, it is interesting to observe fans of teams, clubs and franchises in other sports taking inspiration from Football fan groups and adapting their practices to their own needs. We at FBTG have previously made the point that far from seeing themselves as culturally superior (as many outsiders like to claim), US citizens who follow team sports often display an alacrity to “copy” (for lack of a better word) fan customs they observe in stadia around the world. NFL fans creating Football-Ultra style stickers and posting them around your city is perhaps a good example of this.
Not wanting to waste more money on the metro, I bet with myself that I could make it back from the office to my home where I would be working for the rest of the day in time for my next meeting. The emergency dash to the HR office had taken care of my immediate concern with time to spare, so I decided to walk back from the centre of town towards my flat, snaking my way through El Born district. But in spite of my haste, one shop window still caught my eye and stopped me in my tracks.
We’ve never written about Romanian Football nor even visited the country, but we sure as hell would love to. This design is a little unorthodox but still with a lot of appeal and comes courtesy of fans of CSA Steaua Bucuresti – the best supported team in the country by a country mile.
Seen in Seville. If Delije is a name you are unfamiliar with for any reason, it is perhaps time to do your homework. Start on Youtube.
A snappy design from the North Stand Kollective – the leading fan group of Brighton and Hove Albion FC. The design is quite simple but we think it has been executed fairly well. The only question to be answered is why the NSK culprit decided to sellotape over the sticker after placing it on a lamppost in the first place.
A snappy design coming from the Ben Side ultras of top Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar stating quite clearly who they have a problem with.
Enjoy your weekend folks.
