BK Frem

29 Apr 2016, 14:38

As you remember, 15 people from BK Frem came to visit us the day we had our Football V Homophobia day.

I was in touch with one of them (he's also in the board of the team) and he wrote me a little update on how they're doing (traying to use automatic translation for danish is a nightmare).
We're doing good. Started out the spring at full speed but has lost the last two games. We're hoping for a promotion at the end of the spring. Even though we lost the last two we're still in 2nd place - and three gets promoted. But it's very close. There's 12 teams in the playoffs for promotion and there's still 10 teams within six points off promotion-spot. So it's going to be quite tight.
Lot's of things going on though. Last game we had a visit from some dutch fans who travelled to Copenhagen to see FREM and we've almost had an average of 2.000 at our home games - which is miles from the common standard in the 3rd tier of Danish football.
We've been working a lot with a big fuindraising campaign for the club which has so far raised almost 15.000 pounds! So a lot of things happen here :)

This is the video that "we" made for the fundraising campaign. I tried to translate the narrators story:

"There’s football teams. And there’s football clubs. What is a club? A community. A unity. Where everyone contributes what they can to achieve a common goal. One of the oldest clubs in the country is FREM. An important community in the part of Copenhagen which have not had anything given for free. A community for children, youths and parents. Where there is no difference between high and low and there’s room for everyone who is a good friend. It is the community you rely on when life is difficult. It’s you community you rely on even in adversity. That is how things is done in FREM; men now we are moving towards brighter times. And there is room for more in our community. There’s room for you in our community and in our club life."
