Summary
"This is an ethnographic account of English football fans who travel home and away following their team, based upon sixteen years' participant observation. The author identifies a distinct subculture of supporter--the 'carnival fan'-- who dominated the travelling support of the three teams observed--Manchester United, Blackpool and the England National Team. ... Identifies the primary motivation of these fan groups to be the creation of a carnival--a period of transgression from the norms of everyday life based upon congregating in groups, alcohol consumption, humour and tomfoolery, and expressions of identity. ... The book also looks at issues such as attitudes to gender, sexuality and race, and the impact of technology upon football fandom."--Cover p. [4]
