Football Diplomacy

International Relations and Football since 1914

Although the game of football is known by many names around the world—soccer, fútbol, Fußball, voetbal—the sport is a universal language. Throughout the past century, governments have used football to further their diplomatic aims through a range of actions including boycotts, carefully orchestrated displays at matches, and more. In turn, football organizations have leveraged their power over membership and tournament decisions to play a role in international relations.

In Football Diplomacy, an international group of experts analyzes the relationship between football and diplomacy. Together, they investigate topics such as the use of football as a tool of nation-state–based diplomacy, football as a non-state actor, and the relationship between football and diplomatic actors in subnational, national, and transnational contexts. They also examine the sport as a conduit for representation, communication, and negotiation.

Drawing on a wealth of historical examples, the contributors demonstrate that governments must frequently address football as part of their diplomatic affairs. They argue that this single sport—more than the Olympics, other regional multisport competitions, or even any other sport—reveals much about international relations, how states attempt to influence foreign views, and regional power dynamics.
