Football clubs across the world continue to embody many of the collective symbols, identifications and processes of connectivity which have long been associated with the notion of `community'. In recent years, however, the very term `community' has become the focus of renewed interest within popular discourse and amongst academics, politicians and policy makers. It has become something of a `buzz' word, wheeled out as both a lament to more certain times and as an appeal to a better future: a term imbued with all the richness associated with human interaction.

`Community' has also been employed increasingly within football, for instrumental reasons concerned with policy and stadium redevelopment, and in broader rhetoric about clubs, their localities and fans.

This book brings together a range of key debates around contemporary understandings of `community' in world football. Split into four sections, it considers

political and theoretical debates around football and its connection with community; different national and ethnic football communities; instrumental uses of football to bridge gaps within and between groups; future directions in the football and community debate.

This book was published as a special issue of Soccer & Society.
