THe Asian Football Network/Premier League research project on British Asian football fans undertaken a few years ago resulted in the most extensive research into the experiences, trends and challenges faced by the British Asian supporters attending live football matches.

The research project conducted interviews with a large number of people to reflect different experiences and viewpoints. The published article collates and builds upon the central findings of the research and seeks to demonstrate key ideas that will form the basis of more appropriate and effective policies to tackle the inherent issues.
