Abstract

Debates among political communication scholars and audiences of spectator sport often share a surprising consensus: while the first group has lamented the popularization and thus trivialisation of politics in which sport has played an important role, the latter has objected to the politicisation of sport. In this chapter I will explore the role the consumption of media sport plays in the contemporary public sphere and assess its consequences for forms of public discourse as well as patterns of sport consumption.
