Tatort Stadion 2 – Football and Discrimination15 March 2010

Updated version of the travelling exhibition debuts in Bremen

Tatort Stadion (English name: Target Stadium) is an exhibition that was developed by the Federation of Active Football Fans (BAFF) in 2001 and has since been shown at almost two hundred locations. The exhibition was pioneering as it was the first to focus on the subject of discrimination in football.

Much progress has been made since then. Discrimination is now perceived as a problem and is being tackled by many clubs and supporters. Nevertheless, foreigners and people with an immigrant background are still being abused, anti-Semitic and anti-Romani chants started and homosexuals vilified in German grounds every week. Women still struggle to find acceptance in the 'man's game'. The completely revised exhibition Tatort Stadion 2 seeks to inform not just about everyday discrimination and the activities of neo-Nazis but also about what fans are doing about it.

The new exhibition premieres at the Town Hall (Untere Rathaushalle) in Bremen from 15 to 29 April. Open to the public in the afternoons, it is reserved for school tours in the mornings. There will also be three evening events, to which BAFF warmly invites anyone who is interested to attend.

Opening hours: 15 to 29 April, every day from 1200 to 1900 (the exhibition closes 1½ hours before kick-off when Werder Bremen are at home).

General enquiries, school bookings and expressions of interest to host the exhibition should be directed to BAFF at [email protected].
