    Scandinavian women’s football in world: migration, management and mixed identity2013In: Soccer & Society, ISSN 1466-0970, E-ISSN 1743-9590, Vol. 14, no 6, p. 769-780Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue has grown out of an ongoing Nordic collaborative research project (Nordcorp) using Scandinavian women’s football as a strategically selected extreme case (of organizational development) to study a Nordic sport model in transition. The common point of interest for the project group, which overlaps with the editors and authors in this issue of Soccer and Society, is a fascination with the current development of Scandinavian women’s football that stands out as an intriguing subject for bothsports research and the social sciences.

    Länge leve skolan! En text om utbildning, estetik och skolutveckling2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna skrift har arbetats fram av en grupp studenter på Lärande och samhälle som fortsättning och utveckling av examinationsuppgift på en terminslång kurs, där de hade att iscensätta ett dokumentärfilmsprojekt på högstadiet. Projektet ägde rum inom ramen för huvudämnet Kultur, medier, estetik (KME) - skapat genom en sammanslagning av estetiska ämnen med medie- och kulturstudier 2001 – som ända från starten har tillskrivit det estetiska en särskild förmåga att vända upp och ner på invanda synsätt och kritiserat skolan för att inte lämna tillräckligt utrymme åt denna radikala potential. Den som är det minsta intresserad av skol- och kulturarbete kan inte undgå att dras in i det nät av glödande engagemang, intrikata spörsmål och brottstycken av teoretiska diskussioner som dessa sju studenter väver. Man kommer mycket nära de problem de brottas med utan att någonsin hitta några definitiva svar. Viljan att göra nytt tillsammans med eleverna och med utgångspunkt i deras horisont är obändig. Men så är det ramarna för arbetet... De sju befinner sig i ett interregnum, i en korseld av krav från lärarutbildarna, lärarna på skolan och eleverna, som påminner dem: "Ni är inte våra lärare. Ni kommer hit några timmar i veckan från någon annanstans". Ingenting visar sig vara enkelt. Varför gläds inte eleverna åt att få göra något som kan få betydelse för dem "på riktigt"? Vad är egentligen skillnaden mellan dokumentär- och fiktionsfilm? Hur bedömer man elevernas prestationer i ett så pass öppet projekt? Finns det över huvud taget rum i dagens skola för en pedagogik som vill vara på en gång passionerad, polyfon, prövande och provokativ? Alla dessa är ord som väl kännetecknar skriftens första del, ett grafiskt kaos av utlagda spår som läsaren kan välja bland att följa. Här får man en "cut-up-bild" av de tankevärldar som studenterna försöker orientera sig mot och inom. Den läsare som finner estetiken för provocerande kan alltid börja med andra delen i stället, som analytiskt redogör för de olika filmprojekten. Del tre, slutligen, diskuterar förutsättningarna för de förhållningssätt som utvecklats inom KME att göra sig gällande inom ramen för den nya läroplanen Lgr 11.

    Bandy v. ice hockey in Sweden2020In: Sport in Society: Cultures, Media, Politics, Commerce, ISSN 1743-0437, E-ISSN 1743-0445, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 361-376Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1920, the year ice hockey was introduced to Sweden in connection with the Olympic Games in Antwerp, the traditional British bandy was already a well established team sport on ice in the country. In the early 1900s it had become popular among the upper classes, both men and women, since its deep connection with nature applied to the time’s sense of nostalgia. The Swedish male bandy cup final, which was first played in 1907, is still the country’s oldest large-scale annual sports event. In the press, comparisons were constantly made between the two sports and bandy and ice hockey were seen as contrasts. This resulted in bandy being regarded as truly Swedish and part of the native culture. Concurrently, the sport spread to the working people in Sweden’s rural manufacturing towns while the capital Stockholm established itself as the centre for ice hockey. Elaborating on Allen Guttmann’s theories on modernization, ice hockey’s higher degree of modernity is presented. Adjusting to the modern world was a struggle for bandy and therefore followers of ice hockey predicted its early demise. Still it survived, however surrounded by an even stronger atmosphere of nature-centred nostalgia. The increasingly Americanized sport of ice hockey, on the other hand, became the main player in the growing commercialization of Swedish sport.

    Historical Rivalries in Swedish Club Football2023In: Football in the Nordic Countries: Practices, Equality and Influence / [ed] Mihaly Szerovay; Arto Nevala; Hannu Itkonen, London & New York: Routledge, 2023, 1, p. 179-191Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The text deals with the history of Swedish football's most classic club rivalries. These are the rivalries in Gothenburg (between IFK Göteborg, Örgryte IS and GAIS), Stockholm (AIK, Djurgårdens IF, Hammarby IF), and in the county of Scania (Malmö FF, Helsingborgs IF, Landskrona BoIS). The rivalries in Gothenburg have revolved around social class and political preferences, while those in Stockholm have focused on geography. The Scanian ones have been based on traditional rivalries between nearby cities within a distinct region. During the 2000s, a strong supporter culture has worked glocally to preserve a relatively non-commercial football culture, while rivalries at the same time have become fiercer. The heightened passion around the matches has in turn led to strengthened networks around the clubs, including better press coverage, increased sponsoring and the construction of better stadiums. The analysis summarises a qualitatively based research project on the relationship between club football and local identity in 11 different cities during the period 1950 up to the beginning of the 2000s.

    Immigrant teams in Sweden and the case of Assyriska FF2009In: Soccer & Society, ISSN 1466-0970, E-ISSN 1743-9590, Vol. 10, no 3-4, p. 398-417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay deals with the history of immigration teams in Sweden, from the post-war period until today and with the case of the successful Assyrian football club, Assyriska FF. The analysis of national newspapers shows that matches with the immigrant teams immediately became controversial. The early teams of South European background played in the lower divisions. They were referred to as hot-tempered 'foreign teams', and they made the headlines because the players and their supporters often got involved in fights on and off the field. These problems have decreased in the last ten years. One immigrant team, Assyriska FF from Sdertlje, reached the Premier League in 2005. Despite this achievement, the team lacks support from the majority of the people in Sdertlje. For the Assyrian-Syrian population the feeling is completely different as the team has helped them to become the most integrated group in Södertälje.

    Swedish bandy and its struggle with modernity2024In: Indigenous, Traditional, and Folk Sports: Contesting Modernities / [ed] Mariann Vaczi; Alan Bairner, London and New York: Routledge, 2024, 1, p. 184-198Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish sport of bandy has been declared dead for a hundred years. Still, the sport survives as an ancient Swedish treasure. Neither the modernity of ice hockey, nor floorball, nor climate change has managed to knock it out. The exoticism of bandy is similar to that of the sour herring. Bandy started in the country’s most exclusive milieus – among the aristocracy and university elites – but today represents sparsely populated working-class areas. The Swedish Championship final, played since 1907, has retained its magic as Sweden’s oldest major annual sporting event. The supporter culture around the final has a long history. Not even football has been able to show as large a number of traveling supporters to a match. Nostalgia has long been the hallmark of the sport. Women’s bandy has an equally long and exciting history. During the 2000s, the sport of bandy was substantially modernized. In a short time, it left its dependence on nature and moved into indoor halls, arenas that guaranteed a good ice surface. Fans, however, did not quite accept the changes out of a sense of nostalgia. This study focuses on the sport of bandy and its complex relationship to modernity, the natural environment, nationalism, and nostalgia.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay addresses the rise and fall of the Swedish women's club Umea IK. The question is how a team from a city almost devoid of any football culture suddenly could become one of the most successful clubs in the world during the early 2000s? The theoretical basis consists of the concepts of local identity, glocalization and Manuel Castell's analysis of the network society. The source material is a study of Umea's largest daily newspaper and eleven interviews. Umea IK worked energetically to create a strong local network for a women's club (consisting of good contacts with the municipality, high income from sponsors, good media coverage and high attendances). The university city of Umea was dynamic and progressive, with a strong middle-class character. The population could identify with the team. However, the city's volatility meant that the team did not get long-lasting significance in terms of the city's identity.

    A diagnosis of the commercial immaturity of Swedish club football2011In: Soccer & Society, ISSN 1466-0970, E-ISSN 1743-9590, Vol. 12, no 6, p. 754-773Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a critical diagnosis of Swedish club football, in light of its current shortcomings on the European football market, and in comparison with the other Scandinavian leagues. The article highlights the commercial immaturity of the Swedish clubs, in addition to the context of historical and cultural values, restricted association forms, the emphasis on internationalism, the fixed tax system, the standards of the arenas, the lack of patronage and the migration of talents. The analysis closes with a depressed depiction of Swedish club football, in relation to development in Europe, as well as in Scandinavia. Still, in a dialectical reasoning this situation is, finally, evaluated as a valuable development in relation to fairness, internal sports logics as well as ecological values.

    Glocal culture, sporting decline? Globalization and football in Scandinavia2019In: Sport in Society: Cultures, Media, Politics, Commerce, ISSN 1743-0437, E-ISSN 1743-0445, Vol. 22, no 4: Sport and Outdoor Life in the Nordic World, p. 704-716Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter looks at how globalization has affected and shaped the domestic elite level male football cultures of Scandinavia since the game turned more professional in the region. By drawing on empirical examples from the recent histories of Norwegian, Swedish and, to a lesser extent, Danish football, the authors analyse how the sporting cultures of these countries have changed since the 1970s. The amateur ideologies which had previously dominated football in Scandinavia faded during a period when influences from international and especially professional English football intensified. These influences stretched from playing styles to spectator cultures. While these influences initially made clubs and teams from Scandinavia more competitive in international football, the ‘hypercommodification’ which has dominated top level European football in the new millennium has to a large extent affected Scandinavian football in a negative way in term s of sporting competitiveness. Simultaneously the authors argue that global influences have injected significant fuel and new energy to the spectator cultures evident in a large number of Scandinavian football club communities.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter will give insight into the Nordic football fandom culture describing supporter culture in all five Nordic countries, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, and Finland. Focusing on history, identities, policies, and politics the authors discuss if a specific “Nordic supporter culture” exists and if there are significant perspectives in this culture compared to other football fandom cultures. Sweden has the most devoted fans when it comes to club football in the Nordic countries and Denmark and Iceland when we talk about fans supporting the national teams. Scandinavia of today has a strong supporter culture and good attendances at football matches. While following the development patterns seen in many European countries, football fans in Scandinavia have developed region-specific modes of creative engagement with the game. Supporters not only encourage their clubs, they also provide a modern commentary and criticism of social and economic changes within the globalized football world. The evolution of football fans, exemplified by the Scandinavian context and taking neighboring countries into consideration, is paired with socio-temporal national realities and European developments. Thus, the activities on Scandinavian football arenas result in producing identities and histories relevant in the Nordic context.
