Fan.Tastic Females - my story on the field of football

The field of football is wide - apart from football as a sport, there are numerous areas that women help shaping and where they are committed. From within the active fanbase to science, to fan project work, to work at the club to being engaged as a regular fan. How do women enter the field of football and which kind of obstacles do they face over and over again? What kind of stories do these women bring in and what kind of developments do they observe?

As part of the panel discussion, and just in line with the philosophy of the exhibition itself, we would like to listen to the stories of different women in football and get into a conversation with them about the challenges they face as women and how they perceive sexism and blokish behaviour in their football environment.


 16.00 hrs -
 21.00 hrs

Expert Nights

On these two evenings, visitors will have the opportunity to talk to organisers and people from the active fanbase of MSV Duisburg, to raise questions on the exhibition and bring up ideas for similar events in the future. Zebras stehen auf and the Fan Project Duisburg are looking forward to an exciting exchange!

Presentation: "Pearl from the Terraces?!“ Presentation about female ultras between assimilation and rebellion, followed by a discussion

What is it that motivates female ultras to give their club the shirt off their backs, to tour across all stadia, to scream their heads off? Possibly it is the same as what motivates men - isn't it? In any case, they more or less automatically hold a special role and a position as a minority. Often, they will find that it is made harder for them to be a normal part of ultra culture. But they exist, they are present, and against all odds, they take part.

Lecturer Antje Grabenhorst is football fan, co-organiser of the Fan.Tastic Females and part of the network F_In - Women in Football and part of Football Fans Against Homophobia.

Read more: Our Statement on the Statement...


Dear (without doubt) boys from NBU: we'd like to THANK YOU with all our hearts for your statement.

After all the exclusivly positive feedback we received for the project in the wider media and from various fan groups and clubs both here and abroad, we're not only happy about your response but we now know even better why we've done this exhibition in the first place.

We explicitly welcome the fact that the active engagement with the topic "women in football" finally reached you inside the stadium in the context of this great choreography of the fanbase of the club and has even encouraged you to make a statement! 

We couldn't have dreamt of expecting that much attention from your side.

Because unfortunately, we missed you dearly during the discussion events of the Fan.Tastic Females exhibition period in Freiburg. We would have wished to hear espeically your interesting input there as well. But just as they saying goes: if the mountain will not come to Muhammad...well, you know what we mean.  

But all the more we now welcome your belated commitment to the right to exist of female fans inside the stands and to "gender equality" inside the stadium. Top stuff! In the light of past actions of yours we had already worried that you might have had a different view on the exclusion and discrimination of women at the stadium.  [see image - text on the banner: "Buy new tits and shoes for your women - but leave our football alone with your money!"]

Read more: Our Statement on the Statement...And this brings us straight to our main point - and now it get's even worse: we are in agreement! We don't want to have the debate around sexism inside the stadium either!

But just like other issues, that – as you say so nicely - are not „exclusively serving the support of the own team, the club or the staging of your own stand and apart from issues concering football [...]" - such as the debate around police repression in and around the ground -  we unfortunately have to keep up the debate on sexism in the stadium as well. Because sexist chat-ups, exclusion and harrasment still happen - surprise! - quite regularly in football. Crazy shit, innit?

So, both issues have to do with real and current struggles in football that result in an (often arbitrary) discrimination or exclusion of whole groups in / from the stadium, be it based on gender or the belonging to a particular fanbase. And we are aware that you had to endure the latter only very recently yourselves - alongside others - at your away match against VfB Stuttgart.

This is why: we are really looking forward to seeing you judging yourselves by your own standards in the future. We are keen to meet your female members and would also like to make a conciliatory proposal: of course, you don't have to do a stadium action against sexism in football. But an NBU choreography FOR gender equality and women in the stands at SCF would be neat, right? And above all, it would fit perfectly to your policy of "staging your own stand".  

Winking smiley!
