Ultras Trenčín (Trenchtown Gangsters) were formed in 2005, when a new generation of young punks and skins took control of the terraces. We took inspiration from the tradition of ultra groups in Europe and Slovakia, but we made sure not to promote xenophobia or racism, as the stands at most clubs at the time were, and still in many cases are, dominated by far-right groups.

Since our start, we have been open about our anti-fascist stance. We have made numerous antifascist ties and took part in various anti-racist events. This, of course, attracted the attention of the fascist and nazi-hooligan groups in Slovakia and confrontations became a regular thing.

Apart from our members taking part in various antifascist and political activities, as a group we co-organize a regular tournament/antifascist event – UAFA CUP. It started as an ad-hoc benefit to help fund Partizan Minsk in 2012, but it has grown into a regular annual, international event. Football, concerts, politics, discussions all mix at this benefit event, which is used to fund various social causes and projects.

Over the years, we have had to face problems with our club almost going bankrupt, confrontations with fascist and problems with the FA. We are now in our eleventh year of existence, we are still keeping strong and staying antifascist as the only relevant supporters group in Slovakia.

White Angels Zagreb or in Croatian “Bijeli Anđeli Zagreb”

The name is first mentioned in 1989 and is officially registered in 2000. But the generation that become 100% Antifa and Antira started going in matches around 2006.

There are three generations of WA. First one from 1989-1996. That one was just like all other group in Croatia during the war. We even had some members of BBB in the crew then. Numbers then were around 50. So the group was pretty much nationalized with a lot of Croatia flags.

Then the second generation came around 1999 and we founded the fan-club.

In 2002 our club won the first league and our numbers went to 200. After that football mafia entered the club and started their robbing and destroying the club that lasts even until today.

Around 2006 the third generation started its path, with a lot of punks, skins and other alternative scene members. Then we started to send Antifa messages. Soon local AFA people started to go to the stands, So now we are a group of around 35 and we support our own fan owned club called ZAGREB 041. Club is founded on 01.12.2014 and is comlitly fan owned and run and it plays in croatia 7th division. First and only antifa and antira club in croatia and ex-yugoslavia
