ATAC is one of the international fans organisations from around Great Britain which opposes the formation of a joint Great Britain Football team at the Olympic Games.
It is our view that such a move toward a joint team could severely jeopardise the independent status of the four Home Associations. All four Associations have a proud tradition of very long standing which fans from the four countries wish to retain and any move toward a joint team is seen a major threat to this status.
There is a view within FIFA, the world governing body, that England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales should compete jointly under the banner of Great Britain on a permanent basis. It is our view that a joint Great Britain football team at the Olympics would further enhance their case.
