About this item

This book examines the exclusion of British Asians from the football industry, drawing on a wealth of empirical work with players, coaches, scouts, managers, fans, anti-racist organisations, community officers, and key stakeholders. It adopts a critical race theory (CRT) perspective to offer a platform for excluded communities to discuss their experiences and offer their advice, guidance and criticisms. Notions of whiteness, intersectionalities and gender are explored and filter throughout. This book highlights historical and contemporary reasons for the British Asian exclusion from football, critically examines a number of tried and tested inclusion strategies, and offers recommendations for reform to help achieve equality and inclusion. The research aims to:

  • dehomogenise British Asian football experiences
  • offer the counter-narratives of British Asian male and females to challenge master-narratives
  • comprehend the importance of intersectionalities
  • understand identity shifts and cultural changes
  • challenge socio-cultural stereotypes and racial myths
  • highlight contemporary manifestations of racisms in football at all levels
  • examine the role 'parallel football' environments have played in the exclusion
  • cast a critical eye over inclusion initiatives
  • promote recommendations for reform which are born out of empirical research

As long as marginalized groups, such as British Asians, are excluded from a field of popular culture, in this case football, it is a topic that demands attention, deserves investigation and requires solutions. It is hoped that this book can be of use to students, researchers and policymakers who share an active interest in football, exclusion and equality.
