While football has never been more popular, the rapidly-changing cultures of its supporters take an ever greater variety of forms, from the New Lad culture which produced Three Lions and Fantasy Football to the extremist ultras in Italy. EmbracingMoreWhile football has never been more popular, the rapidly-changing cultures of its supporters take an ever greater variety of forms, from the New Lad culture which produced Three Lions and Fantasy Football to the extremist ultras in Italy. Embracing studies of fandom across Europe, this text tackles questions of power, national and regional identities, race and racism, highlighting the changing role of fans in the game.

From the fast painters of Denmark to the Sonvolti of Italy, the book puts Europes fans centre stage. The opening section deals with issues of power at all levels in the game, from the floating of UK clubs on the Stock Exchange to supporters demands for greater democracy. Focusing on the issue of racism in British and Italian football, the second section examines the take-over of Partick Thistle and offers a critical account of Euro 96, while the third examines the way national identities are represented in sports coverage.
