Away Days

Josefifn Lindén

Tanya, Isak, Fredrik and Oday have moved past the lost gold and are now in the midst of silly season. There is talk of a hot acquisition and tifo preparations are in full swing. The season offers qualifiers for the Europa League where the team will show who owns the stands. But already at the airport, problems arise when half the tifo has disappeared. They all blame each other and Fredrik, who is the most upset, leaves the group wearing the team’s colours in an unknown city in enemy territory. Their irritation soon turns into concern for their friend, a concern that is strengthened when they hear that the opposing team’s supporters are looking for trouble.
Away Days is the independent continuation of TIFO about four young people’s passion for their team. TIFO was praised for the portrayal of young people’s concerns and thoughts about sexuality and was compared to Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch.
