Football in Turkey

Edited By Müge Demir and Ahmet Talimciler

The book presents a collection of papers on a wide range of football issues.

Football is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that needs to be examined in various social and historical contexts. It is influenced by social, economic, political and cultural factors while it also affects social life. As a miniature model of social life, football can almost be regarded as a magical game in the sense that it includes several indicators which provide us with the opportunity to collect information about the events taking place. The methods of analyzing and solving problems experienced on football fields and in social life should broaden the perspective, focusing on all actors of football.

Media Representation of Sports in Turkey: The Example of Hürriyet and Sabah Newspapers


Our purpose in this study is to reveal how the relationship between sports and the media in Turkey is established, and which elements are brought to the forefront or kept in the background over the course of this establishment. To what extent the sports branches apart from football are included and the way of inclusion allow us to understand which role the media plays in the establishment of sports culture in our country, and meeting this culture with large masses. Moreover, when we consider that the sports platform has the quality of being a field arising on a sex-oriented basis, a large number of similar cases that indicate how the media is united with this structure also make our analysis much stronger. In our study, we research how the relationship between sports and the media is established, after explaining what is understood by the concepts of media and sports. In the next section, we try to show how sports in our country are represented in the media, by taking the examples of Hürriyet and Sabah newspapers.
