The Football and its Communities research, was carried out whilst the authors were based at the Manchester Institute for Popular Culture, Manchester Metropolitan University and Sheffield Hallam University between 2002 and 2005. It outlines a new vision and understanding for how the football world can engage with communities. The research is based on case studies of the relationships between three football clubs – Leeds United, Manchester City and Sheffield United – and their communities, as well as a range of other community sports programmes in those and other cities.
