The Bremen Fans have something creative planned for tonight

Werder Bremen Fans are planning the biggest Choreo Show ever for the UEFA Cup game against AC Milan. The millions in front of the TV and the sold out Weserstadium crowd will get the opportunity to see an impressive display against Racism.

A huge portion of the show will be done with the hard work of the Antidiskriminierungs-AG (Antidiscrimination AG) of the Werder-Fans. The Antidiskriminierungs-AG was founded in March 2008 by Werder-Fans and the Fanprojekt Bremen and has worked since then to educate about Right Wing extremism, Racism, Anti Semitism, Sexism and Homophobia in Soccer. The goal of the group is to help end discrimination amongst the fans and to end Rightwing influence among some of the Fan Scene.

Working Night and Day

“The Show will cover the entire Ostkurve from the top to the bottom. Approximately 20 people have worked on this every day and sometimes through the night”, said Thomas Hafke from the Bremer Fanprojekt.
The exact motifs of the Show will remain a surprise until game time. “Of course we thought about the timing: We have an international match and many foreign Fans are visiting us, so the motto will have an international theme” said Hafke.

Translators for Italian Fans

Besides the Choreo show the Bremer Fanprojekt has also planned to host more events. The AC Milan fans will be invited to a German-Italian Fan Fest in the Ostkurvensaal (one of the meeting halls in the Stadium) with Music, cold and warm drinks, Snacks and Italian Food.

To assist the communication among the Fans the Fanprojekt Bremen will again use translators who are going to assist the Italian Fans at the gates as well. During the game they will be available to answer any questions from the Tifosi in the visitor area of the Weser-Stadium. The invitation to the fans of AC Milan has the motto “Soccer fans against Racism”.

Here is the invitation that was sent to the Italian Fans:

TIFOSI CONTRO IL RAZZISMO
