Abstract [en]

This paper takes its starting point in DIF’s “Sport for all” policy and reacts to two statements that were frequently stressed by people in the Danish Football Association during a yearlong fieldwork carried out in 2007. One of the statements was based on strong prejudice towards people with an immigrant background, the other against women. All of our views, prejudiced, or not, are related to knowledge. That knowledge and the lack thereof play an important role in each of our lives should therefore remain unchallenged. Consequently, accessibility to the different arenas where knowledge is created and communicated is of greatest importance. This applies to all of us, both laypersons and researchers. We are all in need of acquiring knowledge, but as researcher we have a greater responsibility in producing and diffusing this knowledge. This paper will illustrate and problemize the actual knowledge gap that exist between the Danish FA and the reality it organises and how this affects the potential social capital at both ends, at the same time as it challenge our role as researchers. Were does it start and where does it end?
