Download PDF by Anonym: Globalisierung und Fußball: Chance oder Misere? (German

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich activity - Sportsoziologie, be aware: 2,0, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Fachbereich Sportwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Soziologie des Fußballs, 25 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Fußball ist in der Gegenwart mehr als nur ein Spiel. Neben der nationalen Identität beeinflusst der game mit all seinen Facetten auch politische und gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen. Ähnlich gewinnt Globalisierung zusehends an Bedeutung. In Zukunft werden sich (alle) Akteure sowie Organisationen den Paradoxien und Herausforderungen von Globalisierung stellen müssen (vgl. Beck, 1997, S. 217).
Hier setzt meine Hausarbeit an und rückt die politische measurement des Fußballs (in Bezug auf Deutschland) im Kontext der Globalisierung in den Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung. Besonders die nationalstaatliche service provider des activities in Zusammenhang mit seinem transnationalen Charakter erzeugt erhebliche Widersprüche. Es stellt sich die Frage nach Globalisierungsverlierern und deren Zukunftsperspektive. Wie muss sich die enterprise und somit der Bezugsrahmen des Fußballs ändern, damit auf die Herausforderungen einer globalisierten Welt reagieret werden kann?
Eine Masse an unterschiedlichen Definitionen und Definitionsansätzen zum Begriff der Globalisierung lässt sich in der einschlägigen Literatur finden. In den letzten Jahren ist der Begriff sowohl in der Alltagswelt, als auch in der wissenschaftlichen Welt sehr populär geworden und wurde entsprechend vielseitig diskutiert. Mittlerweile ist er als das Modewort der 90er Jahre bekannt und die Globalisierungsdebatte wird immer komplexer und ausführlicher. Der Hausarbeit liegt das Verständnis des Begriffs nach Ulrich Beck (1997, S. 28-29) zu Grunde: „Globalisierung meint […] die Prozesse, in derer Folge die Nationalstaaten und ihre Souveränität durch transnationale Akteure, ihre Machtchancen, Orientierungen, Identitäten und Netzwerke unterlaufen und quer verbunden sind.”
