Your Club! Fan! But Why?
Vincentson (1. Köln) 5 years ago

I'm vincent from berlin. I'm currently studying visual communication at UdK berlin and for a project about "love" I'm working on a little brochur about football and fanculture.
We all love and support our favorite club. It doesn't matter if its your hometown club or a club from the other side of the world. I think for most people the love for your club and fanculture in general is a phenomenon that's neither easy to understand nor to describe. But for my project I need your help!

I need you to answer a few questions. It will only take you a few minutes. I have no doubt that it will give me some awesome material for my brochur I'd really appreciate it.

So here we go:

Where are you from and which club do you support?
What is special about the club you support and why / since when your are a real supporter?
How would you describe the love for your club and how do you express it?

All the best,

I'm from Derby and I follow them in the Championship and got to a few games but really I support Chelsea and that's who I follow in the Prem. Chelsea are special because blue is my fave colour and not much else, and I've been a fan since I was like 6 or something because I just decided to pick a team who I would support. My love for the club is all the merchandise I have like wallet, shirts, duvete cover and more

I support united because it was the first club in fifa96 to have 5 stars, and I wanted a good team. This is also the start of ryan giggs being my favourite player

I'm from Dublin, but have family from Liverpool. I spent my teens getting ferries and flights over there to watch games in Anfield. The reason I love Liverpool is because the fans are incredible. Its a culture of loving the club as opposed to some other clubs that do nothing but hate the rivals. The Liverpool song "You'll never walk alone" sums up the whole thing.... No matter what is going on, we're there for each other and the team

Because in Fifa 07, they were considered rivals with Arsenal, my cousin's team

I'm from India but I was born and have lived in Thailand for my whole life. Over here the majority of the supporters are Liverpool fans and a lot of them (including almost all of my friends) also support Man United. I started watching football at about the time that Jose Mourinho took charge of Chelsea (right before he was about to become manager) and I'm not exactly sure what it was that got me so interested in them but even though they didn't win the title that year I just couldn't stop supporting or watching them play. Soon Mourinho took over and we became unstoppable and that's when I really started following footy (not just watching it on TV). I soon became a hardcore Chelsea fan and supported them no matter what happened
