Beschreibung

This volume draws upon social science and historical approaches to provide insights into the world of women's football and female fans. It gives an in-depth analysis of the development of the women's game in different European countries and examines the experiences of female fans. An overview about women's football in Europe shows the rise and development of the game and the increasing inclusion of girls and women in football and fan communities. To date, there has been a lack of research on female participation in football, but drawing on research studies from various European countries, the volume explores a range of issues, including how girls and women become football fans and players, how women combine football with their everyday lives, and how they may encounter stereotypes and barriers when they challenge male dominance by entering this traditionally male sport.

This collection will be of interest to students and scholars in a range of fields, including sports sociology, sport sciences, gender studies, leisure studies, women's studies as well as fandom and cultural studies.



The book provides insight into the complex network of gendered experiences that can be part of playing and spectating football. Female Football Players and Fans there for is an important contribution to increasing the knowledge and raising awareness of women's football, and perhaps encouraging people to question their own preconceptions and understandings of this sport. (Lise Joern, idrottsforum.org, September, 2018)
