Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the football team Dalkurd act locally and transnationally through their identifications, relationships and activities with other actors with whom the footballsteam interacts. The study has also focused on the tensions that arise between the local Dalkurd and transnational Dalkurd. Theoretical starting points are based on the transnational perspective, which is important in order to understand how a football team like Dalkurd act through his activities, identifications and relationships. The second theoretical perspective is based on the social networks 'importance for the football clubs' culture and local identity, which is important for understanding the local identity based on Swedish club culture. The methodological approach of the study is based on case studies with qualitative focus. The empirical material consists of a large number of media texts in the form of existing interviews and reports published in newspapers, radio and television. Also materials from web-based websites, and other social media. The result shows that Dalkurd has, through his activities, social relations and belongings and also symbols created transnational identity, and the association has also created local identifications even that these are relatively limited. The study's results showed that the football team has created a triadic relationship in the form of "transnational social space" between a football association in the form of Dalkurd, the country of hostland Sweden and the home country Kurdistan.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur fotbollslaget Dalkurd verkar lokalt respektive transnationellt genom sina identifikationer, relationer och aktiviteter med andra aktörer som fotbollsföreningen interagerar med. Studien har även fokuserat på de spänningar som uppstår mellan det lokala Dalkurd och transnationella Dalkurd. Teoretiska utgångspunkter bygger på det transnationella perspektivet som är viktigt för att kunna förstå hur ett fotbollslag som Dalkurd verkar genom sina aktiviteter, identifikationer och relationer. Det andra teoretiska perspektivet bygger på de sociala nätverkens betydelse för fotbollsklubbarnas kultur och lokala identitet vilket är viktig för att förstå den lokala identiteten utifrån svensk klubbkultur. Studiens metodologiska ansats bygger på fallstudier med kvalitativ inriktning. Det empiriska materialet består av ett stort antal mediatexter i form av befintliga intervjuer och reportage publicerade i tidningar, radio och tv. Även material från webbaserade hemsidor, och andra sociala medier har tagits med. Resultatet visar att Dalkurd genom sina aktiviteter, sociala relationer samt tillhörigheter och symboler har skapat en transnationell identitet men föreningen har också skapat lokala identifikationer även att dessa är relativ begränsade. Studiens resultat visade att fotbollslaget har skapat ett triadisk förhållande i form av ”transnational social space” mellan en fotbollsförening i form av Dalkurd, bosättningslandet Sverige och hemlandet Kurdistan.
