KEYNOTE: The History of Colonization in Soccer
Britian and her colonial empire did not only bring colonization, they also brought sports. Sports was used as a mens to colonize the people. While sport was undoubtedly used within colonies as a means of cementing a collective cultural bond to Empire, the historical development of sports such as cricket clearly show the people of colonized races and ethnic groups as actively involved in the making of their own sporting cultures. These sporting cultures were used as a means of resistance.
