From the sketch to the website
The simplest ideas are usually the best.
Like on April 11, 2017 in Dortmund, when supporters of AS Monaco needed a place to stay. Due to a bombing of the BVB team bus, their side’s game had been postponed to the following day at short notice. The help was brought by a hashtag: under #bedforawayfans the people of Dortmund offered the Monaco fans free accommodation.
This hasn’t been the only solidarity action between football fans in recent years. There was #FreeKyivCouch4Fans in Kiev and #Auswaertsbett in Dresden. Remarkable campaigns to unusual causes. But couldn’t free accommodation for football fans become standard?
We spent a year asking the question to ourselves, then started working on the answer. Another twelve months later, the first version of BEDFORAWAYFANS.COM was ready. On July 1, 2019, we went live with the site. And the feedback shows that the idea is lived. Not only as a bed search. We consider ourselves as a connecting element, we want to stimulate, exchange, revitalize the European spirit and possibly even be the spark of a new fan friendship. We want to prove that football fans are ready to manage things on their own. Don’t let hotels and travel operators decide about costs and experience of your away trip.
“Even if societies are drifting apart, I still love the European idea. And BEDFORAWAYFANS is a big help to keep it alive. The website gives me the chance to connect easily with people that share the same passion: football and travel. My trips are not only stadium visits anymore. I come as a guest and often leave as a friend.”
“BEDFORAWAYFANS offers an excellent opportunity to find accommodation provided by like minded football fans all over Europe. Moreover, I can gain information on host cities, stadia and where to hang out. A fixtures list is also included to meet other fans who attend the same match – overall a great way to connect with football supporters who share the same passion.”
“This is just fantastic: easy to register,easy to use and really helpful. Having this kind of support is a relief. It creates a positive connection between fans all over Europe. BEDFORAWAYFANS is a great initiative. I guess it has everything to become big. Congrats!”
