All over the world you can find footballclubs with special rivalries. Most of the time, this is caused by nothing more than narcistic navel-gazing by supporters. The "us-against-them" mind-set that feeds people's temeperaments derives from a gut feeling. But in reality, clubs and their supporters have more similarities than differences.
Love-hate releationships run much deeper when they arise from politival battles, ethnic diversity or imbalanced social relationships. Fanatics' identities are often determined by social conflicts. These rivalries are manifestations of the phenomenon "Footballculture"
Because of our love for the game and fascination for this culture we have decided to analyse and document special and unconventional football rivalries in the series "Bigger Than Football".
