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.
