 About the Book 

The Chelsea School Research Centre Edition originated in the advanced scholarship and research undertaken in CSRC as it consolidated and developed its national and international research networks. It brings together state-of-the art scholarship and research in sport sociology, sport sciences, leisure studies and physical education. This book is concerned with the relationship between sport and collective identities in contemporary societies. It looks at the relationship between sport and national identities and between sport and urban/local identities. Furthermore it deals with the increasingly important sphere of media sport and the role of television and press in expressing and forming collective identities.
