Despite the Iron Curtain falling over twenty years ago, for many football fans the central and eastern European game remains shrouded in mystery. Troubled by the insufficient and scattered information available in English, the SFU is designed to assemble intelligent journalism devoted to football being played throughout the former Eastern Bloc countries.
The SFU’s writers cover many different leagues and national teams but share a passion to open up the region to a wider audience and offer timely news, match analyses, and features highlighting the social and historical significance of the region’s football. Whether an exposé on the Sarajevo derby, tactical reviews of the Russian Premier League, a history of the Estonian national team, or the current prospects coming out of Poland’s Ekstraklasa, the members of the SFU seek to broadcast candid stories from a geographically broad and culturally diverse set of perspectives.
The Slavic Football Union is currently looking to expand its list of contributors even further. Our aim is provide insight into every single nook and cranny of Central and Eastern European football and in order to do this we need your help!
So if you’re a fan of FC Hradec Králové, a staunch supporter of Georgia’s Umaglesi Liga or a fan of any aspect of this footballing region then we would love to hear from you.
‘How do we get in touch?’ I hear you cry!
