Of course it is not. It is a way to make money for your group and to show who you are, it shows your club colours and group name etc.

I believe that it is aitive thing to be selling merchandise. The funds created through this allow each team of Ultras to develop in to a stronger band as well as possibly give money back to the club (I believe Galatasaray Ultras do this.)

In Dundee FC (Dark Blue 62)s case giving money back to the club onec we become a stronger band is logical. The clubs past financial problems are well documented and it would be a positive step for football fans across the world to follow suit if they have been in a similar situation.

in a way it is fair...but i think there are other ways to make money...IF it is needed!

if a group needs money because they do coregraphy or because they want to put money back into the curva to make it better, then it can be ok...

but for small groups why would you want to sell your stuff to someone you don't know?? and what would you need money for???

i think to sell things to people you don't know its just making your name bigger for no reason...maybe like some groups do and selling "Curva Sud" merchandise instead of a group merchandise is better...but not always to make money!
