2015 is done and it's time to thank for all the effort and passion fanatic football supporters showed us during the year. Once again we are very impressed by what ultras have done all over the world!
In 2015 we published more than 900 articles on Ultras-Tifo.net. From those articles we tried to select the 25 best TIFO actions.
As usual it's very difficult to choose only 25 TIFO actions. Some groups suffer from bigger repression than others, some groups face bigger sanctions for pyro than other groups. Some of you support a small local club with few fans, some of you belong to one of the big groups with many thousand members.
One thing is sure, we are very thankful and respect all supporters who show great passion every weekend supporting their team. We (ultras) are what make football something special!
Impressive year by fans in Morocco. In this match Raja supporters displayed 3 choreography, one of them very complicated with horizontal plastic stripes. Topped it with pyro show.
4 different choreographies by fans of Saint-Etienne. Very original idea with different color on the front and the back of the ponchos. When all the fans turned around, the choreo changed colors!

Simple and nice! This strobo show (flashing pyro) by fans of Avellino looked nice. With the ongoing repression against Italian ultras, it is very nice to see big pyro shows like this.
South-American style and another crazy show by fans of Rosario Central in Argentina. It's hard to tell which stand belongs to the fanatics, because all spectators is just mental! Big firework was also launched from the crowd and not on the roof or behind stadium as some clubs tend to do elsewhere.
