about the site
We here at Urban75 are big fans of football and we've been actively involved in campaigning for the rights for fans for many years.
In 1994, we set up the Football Fans Against the Criminal Justice Act campaign to warn and inform fans that it wasn't just ravers, road protesters, crusties and squatters who would fall foul of this dreadful legislation.
At the time, we were already running what had become the UK's fast selling Small Press comic, Bluebird Jones, a irreverent 32-page comic strip about raving, drugged, drunk footie fans, and we funded the campaign on the sales of the comic.
After only a few months, the FFACJA campaign had secured the full support of many campaign groups and football bodies such as the Football Supporters Association and Liberty, as well as substantial grassroots support with over 75 UK fanzines pledging their support.
The campaign received widespread national coverage and our fact-sheets and on-line information have proved a vital information resource for fans - we hope that you might find them a useful and informative archive.
The original campaign site slowly grew into the behemoth that is now urban75, taking on board other issues like drug information, environmental issues, rave culture and more.
We're still very concerned with the continuing yuppification of the game and watching the true fans getting squeezed out as the big money moves in.
We're fed up with seeing fans getting pushed about and treated like shit, and watching the terraces getting replaced by shiny corporate hospitality boxes.
If you want to have a rant about the state of football, slap it up on the urban75 footie bulletin boards or if you've got an article that you'd think is appropriate for the site, mail it to us!
