Participate in research on the Social Psychology of Team Attachment and Football

by Nick Osbaldiston and George Van Doorn

This study examines the social, group and individual dynamics of being a ‘football fan’ (of any code) and how this is demonstrated in apparel and attendance at live games, etc. My colleague George Van Doorn and I are hoping to understand how people engage with their teams of following and how their attachment to these teams creates bonds that potentially last generations.

If you have a spare 15 minutes, can you please complete this survey found here:

We hope that the results will create a space for further research into emotional labour and football in the near future.
