About this book

Most sociological work on football fandom has focused on the experience of men, and it usually talks about alcohol, fighting and general hooliganism. This book shows that there are some unique facets of female experience and fascinating negotiations of identity within the male-dominated world of men's professional football.

Reviews

'Carrie Dunn's book shows that there are some unique facets of the female football fan experience, including a strong engagement with the new cooperative supporters' trust movement, and fascinating negotiations of identity within this male-dominated world. [This book] will challenge readers to think about the fluid nature of identity, behaviour and practice, not just for individual communities but for their institutions as well.'- LSE Review of Books
