Sports are an important part of modern society worldwide. Major sporting events such as the Olympics, the FIFA (soccer) World Cup, the Super Bowl, just to name a few, will draw tens of thousands of spectators and are often viewed by hundreds of millions of interested viewers. The most successful sports teams develop fan bases that expand beyond regional boundaries. What accounts for this heightened interest in events and teams and why are sports important? We will use sociological analysis to try to explore possible answers to these questions and also to use sports as a vehicle to study a variety of social issues in modern (primarily U.S.) society.
