Tifo: A behind the scenes look at the creation of the 2019 Pride Tifo

Last May, I went to the warehouse where the design and creation team was creating the tifo. After complications involving material, its debut was delayed. Sunday, we saw it and it was incredible.

Tifo from any club or organization is always a sight to behold. Some of the biggest clubs in Europe debut masterpieces that just drop your jaw. However, when it’s your own club, and it’s a message that’s so enlightening and perfect it makes it that much better.

I was lucky enough to go behind the scenes and see how David Martin, the lead designer on the team, made things work. With tasks ranging from sewing, cutting, tracing and even digitally design, David led the volunteer team in its creation.

I’d also like to mention how hard the crew worked on getting this design ready - they put in countless hours over the summer. Well done everyone. Thanks for sharing it with us!
