The list aims to summarise the activities of ultras groups in a given year, and Wydad supporters topped it for a second time in a row.


Wydad Casablanca fanatics best in the world

Known for their exuberant vocals and creative tifos, Les Rouges fans have been rewarded for their passionate spirit. Dominating the world's top ten, Wydad ultras are ahead of Legia Warsaw and Olympique Marseille fans, who came second and third respectively. Raja Casablanca's crowd ranks fifth. Wydad won the ranking for the second consecutive year.

Ultras World highlights several criteria, such as the creativity and impact of the scenography, the generous use of pyrotechnics or the ability to move in mass. These ingredients are essential for igniting and setting up an unforgettable atmosphere that will carry the team. The Casablanca derby is played at Stade Mohamed V and the atmosphere shared by both Wydad and Raja supporters is truly amazing.
