This book examines the complex ways in which girls and women
experience football cultures in Britain. It extends current debate
surrounding women and football (namely, how gender has functioned
to shape women's experiences of playing the game), by focusing on
organisational, administrative and coaching practices, alongside
the particular issues surrounding sexuality, ethnicity and
disability (not only gender). The book analyses football and gender
to reveal the subtle forms of discrimination that persist. It is
important to highlight the many challenges and transformations made
by girls and women but more importantly to consider the ways power
continues to operate to devalue and undermine girls and women
involved in the game. The UK-based authors make use of their recent
research findings to offer critical debate on girls' and women's
current experiences of British football cultures. Overall the book
reveals the present day complexities of marginalisation and
exclusion. This book was published as a special issue of Sport and
