Digital Football Cultures : Fandom, Identities and Resistance, Hardback Book

Digital Football Cultures : Fandom, Identities and Resistance Hardback

Edited by Stefan Lawrence, Garry Crawford

Part of the Advances in Leisure Studies series


As the digital revolution continues apace, emergent technologies and means of communication present new challenges and opportunities for the football industry.

This is the first book to bring together key contemporary debates at the intersection of football studies, leisure studies, and digital cultural studies. It presents cutting edge theoretical and empirical work based around four key themes: theorizing digital football cultures; digital football fandom; football and social media; and football (sub)cybercultures.

Covering topics such as transnational digital fandom, online abuse, and gender, Digital Football Cultures argues that we are witnessing the hyperdigitalization of the world's most popular sport. This book is a valuable resource for students and researchers working in leisure studies, sports studies, football studies, and critical media studies, as well as geography, anthropology, criminology, and sociology.

It is also fascinating reading for anybody working in sport, media, and culture.
