This book employs men's football as a lens through which to investigate questions relating to immigration, racism, integration and national identity in present-day Sweden. Specifically, this study explores if professional football serves as a successful model of multiracialism/multiculturalism for the rest of Swedish society to emulate, and further asks whether the amateur game acts as an avenue of integration for members of the country's non-Nordic immigrant communities. This work additionally examines both overt and more hidden institutional forms of racism in Swedish football, paying special attention to the experiences of African (and other black) footballers at all levels of the sport. All of these subjects are, in turn, considered in a broader, comparative, West European context.
