Refugees Welcome

In the current political climate it is only natural that football has once again become a platform for social change. The refugee crisis in Europe has produced a wide range of responses and arguments but over the last week we have seen a very clear message from Germany and German football clubs. The message from the terraces of clubs up and down Germany was clear “refugees welcome“. Such a bold statement is evidence of the liberal attitude that Germany has taken towards the acceptance of refugees.

From Bayern to Dortmund there was a very clear message for politicians across Europe. Clubs also got involved in handing out free tickets to refugees (Dortmund and Mainz) as well as handing out free clothing and kits (Hannover).

With so many clubs and fans actually coordinating their intentions it certainly makes you feel proud that football can do its bit for people suffering in the most horrible way.
