Title: Soccer, clans, and nation
Author: Machado, IJD
Abstract: In an exploration of aspects of soccer and nation in Brazil, the article demonstrates how soccer serves to organize and classify reality by dividing the world into dan-teams. Approaching soccer as more than a metaphor, the article analyzes soccer trams as clans that are parts of a specific universe, where people are divided according to their support for a given team. As a system for classifying reality within people's day-to-day lives, this universe brings people together and transforms vertical relationships into horizontal ones. Lastly, the article analyzes the relation between this type of classification and the construction of the Brazilian nation. The main purpose is to propose new issues and approaches pertinent to a sociological reading of Brazilian soccer.
