Les territoires du football : l'espace des « supporters à distance »

Abstract : Football fandom seems to be redefining the relationship to territory: fans of football clubs can belong to social networks disconnected from the geographical and cultural affiliations of the majority of members. '˜'˜Remote supporting' reveals the complexification of sports identification processes and their gradual disconnection from experiences of conflict and emotion, felt in a local or national context. By remodelling the '˜'˜space of football'', this trend provides insights into forms of community feeling, '˜'˜elective identities'' and the construction of trans-territorial social networks in the contemporary world.
