The Fans Who Make Football: Raja Casablanca AC
Learn about the fans who make football: Raja Casablanca AC.
Raja Casablanca fans transform the political landscape of Morocco from inside the national stadium as they use the stands to send messages of defiance. The Mohammed V football stadium in the centre of Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, holds more than its sports legacy. It is a space to protest the country’s social, economic and political structures on national television.
This film explores Raja Casablanca’s history as an outlet for the city’s working-class youth and their displeasure with the country’s politics. It also searches for the revolutionary fans of Casablanca and reveals those who, by sheer weight of numbers, cannot be ignored.
