Anti-Madridista: Negative Symbolic Consumption By Football Fans
The consumption of football entails a considerable amount of symbolism, which is often related to the colours and merchandise paraded by the fans. This paper focuses on anti-items, i.e. team-related tangibles (e.g. shirts, jerseys, scarves, hats, flags) that identify the fan in opposition to other teams. As an example of negative symbolic consumption, anti-items are presented in the framework of distinction and interpreted according to catharsis and self-expression theories. These findings are based on extensive naturalistic research in the football fan subculture.
