In 2008, the Fan Embassy in Geneva was hugely successful, counting many visits from fans, and setting the standard for future Fan Embassies, according to one Swiss organiser. Possible reasons for Geneva’s success included its location at a very central place that was on the route than many fans took, and its better visibility, having been integrated into an adapted truck. Another positive factor might have been the FEs positioning next to the “Street Kick Tour”, where fans were encouraged to form teams and play against one another in a celebration of diversity.
