FREE is a collaborative and interdisciplinary research project which seeks to understand the impact of the most popular and most widely shared of all expressions of popular culture, football, on identity dynamics, perception patterns and cultural change in Europe. The project seeks to explore an apparently non-political, but fully existing sub-cultural European public space of communication: the European football scene in the largest sense.

FREE brings together researchers from nine universities (Angers, Ancara, Besançon, Copenhagen, Loughborough, Poznan, Stuttgart, Valencia and Vienna) in eight different European states and from a range of scholarly disciplines (including anthropology, history, international relations, political science, sociology).

FREE is funded by the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) of the European Commission (Project reference: 290805). The project period is 1 April 2012 - 31 March 2015.
