What’s the Italian term for the (Ultra?) who conducts the crowd with the loudspeaker/megaphone?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I’m a Milan fan rediscovering Serie A again (and Italian lingo!), and was wondering;

What’s the Italian term for the (Ultra?) who conducts the crowd with the loudspeaker/megaphone?

Is there a general term for that chap, or does it vary club to club/region to region?

Thanks in advance!

Mike

In The Netherlands at my club Ajax, we have ultras called The F-side due to the stand they are in and a Capo with the mega phone, his name is Dani, the former leader called Carlo was killed in fight between Ajax and Feyenoord fans.  The fireworks and banners are called Tifo.

@Rossonero Dhamiano - what's your favourite Milan tifo?

I'm a Liverpool fan - but I've always loved AC Milan, since the first time I saw them on Football Italia as a kid, and I think they've had some very cool tifos. I think some AC Milan ultras are crazy (booing Maldini in his final match ever for Milan? Insane! The man is a living legend!) but there's no doubt they're capable of creating a brilliant atmosphere.

I loved AC Milan also as a kid when they had the Dutch Trio but I am not a fan of their Tifo after what they did against Ajax around 2011, showing a banner with Ajax players taking a shower in a concentration camp due to the Jewish heritage at the club.

Holy shit, that's incredibly fucked up!

Yep it is, I would expect this from maybe Lazio due to their fascist links but not from Milan, maybe it was done as a joke but extremely distasteful.

Even if it's a "joke" the Holocaust isn't really the greatest thing to joke about. It's like when people make the "hiss" noise at Spurs fans (also big Jewish links to their fanbase) - it's done to get a rise out of fans, but it's not really okay at all. A racist joke is racist, even if it's just a joke. An anti-Semitic joke is anti-Semitic, by the same token.

I don't even see how that could be construed as a joke though. It's just something that shouldn't ever happen in the era we live in. Sad people are still like this to their fellow man.
