Violence in amateur football, including youth football, is a persistent nationwide problem in Germany, with alarming and consequential incidents, including the death of a 15-year-old player in Frankfurt. Therefore, with this proposal (No.687), the City Council decides to implement measures to combat violence and discrimination, promote fair play, and ensure safety for players, referees, and spectators. These measures include, among other things, support for sports associations, de-escalation training, and a campaign against violence on sports fields.
Frankfurt Declaration – United Against Violence in Football
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
