10 years ULTRAS-TIFO.net | 24.12.2004 - 24.12.2014

10th Anniversary ULTRAS-TIFO.net

So, here we are 10 years after the start of ULTRAS-TIFO

 

Officially Ultras-Tifo started 24th of December 2004. Ultras-Tifo was created by 2 Portuguese brothers - Sporting CP supporters, from where we got our green&white colors. Sadly they didn't had time enough to continue with the site, so shortly after the start we took control and continued with Ultras-Tifo.

 

The Forum

At the beginning UT was just a forum where supporters from Europe, and later from all over the World, could share info and multimedia. First year was hard, such as every start, but then the forum started to be more and more popular and now days we have more than 35,000 registered members who wrote more than 637,000 posts!

The Site

The website were launched 6th Dec. 2007.

Yeah, we won't lie - it was not that good looking and far away from the best site. But we managed to work with it, get better designs, better sources and now (after what we believe) UT is a very great world wide portal for football fanatics.

There are new articles coming online every single day!

Media's about UT

During the years a lot of Ultras Magazines and well known newspapers wrote or mentioned Ultras Tifo. Among them are the names of Blickfang Ultra - Most popular German fanzine! And even The Wall Street Journal (newspaper) had a interview with us about the supporter scene in USA vs Europe.

 

UT actions

As a big tribune that is followed by many people, it's sometimes our duty to speak for other supporters.

There is plenty examples of when we write about problems other fans have, example new ticket system in Hungary, Turkey and Italy.

Other examples is articles about "Speziale Libero", which was very successful. Now we wrote about the purposely wrong arrested fans of Besiktas and Christmas/New Year charity by other groups.

 

Thanks to all of you who follow Ultras-Tifo.net, and especially to everybody who help with photos, videos and information.

Also a big thank to our team of Moderators on our Forum!
