Ancient Times
1890 – Physical Education (PE) was introduced and encouraged within schools, due to success of football. 1895 – C.B Fry (footballer and cricketer)‘The great and widespread interest in football is a manifest fact. So much so that now a days it is frequently urged that cricket can no longer be regarded as our national game in the true sense of the word. Football is it claimed, has now first place in the popular heart’ (Walvin, J. 1994)
1900's - 21st Century

The formation of today's teams lead to a growing concern in violence.

Violence in Sport - growing concern with violence at an official level became evident in the late 1960s
21st Century - Present Day

Is Football more civilized today?
The Civilizing Process

Eric Dunning (1979) attributed "the rise in violence to the failure of the civilizing process" (Dunning et al, 1989).
Based on what you have heard so far modern day football within society has changed dramatically.

The rules in and around the sport have developed in order to make the sport safe for everyone involved.

Football as a sport as became more commercialized up to the present day.
2000- Present day
“Kick It Out works throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and work for positive change” (Kickitout, 2013).

Racism in football is a big issue in today's society.
There is no place for racist abuse in modern football.
Example: Kevin-Prince Boateng walked of the pitch in protest against being racially abused (Skysports, 2013).
Aspects of the civilising process are shown through the rules of modern day football.
These have been developed to ensure the safety of both participants and spectators.
For example: no two footed challenges, no challenging with intent to harm others, no high feet.
Game must stop for head injuries, no blood on kits etc.
(The FA online, 2013)
Rule changes
Football is more broadcasted across a wide variety over media channels.
Media coverage of incidents are more widely reported, for example incidents of racism in football are reported as they happen (Skysports, 2013).
The media has a large influence on peoples perception of the sport and the incidents that happen to occur.

Professionalism in Football grew

The first 11 years of the FA cup were won by amateur teams, 1882 was the last year an amateur team won the FA cup.
The growing popularity of football was clear for all to see as in 1864 an advertisement in the Leeds Mercury stated “Football. Wanted a number of persons to form a football club for playing on Woodhouse Moore for a few days a week from 7 to 8-o-clock a.m.”
(Walvin, J. 1994)

500 men turned up after seeing the advertisement

On 26th of October 1863, The Football Association (The FA) was formed by a group of football team captains who met at the Freemason’s Tavern in Lincoln’s Inn Field.
The original aim of the meeting was too

“modify rules for the regulation of the game of football”
(Walvin, J. 1994)
“At a meeting held in the offices of The Sportsman in London on 20th July 1871, a proposal by FA Honorary Secretary Charles Alcock "that it is desirable that a Challenge Cup should be established in connection with the Association, for which all clubs belonging to the Association should be invited to compete”
(The FA, 2013)

In 1871/72 the first FA Cup was competed with the Wanderers winning the cup.

Only 15 teams competed in the Cup.

"During the late 1900's and even today, they are, instead, about capital. For example, The FA Premier League Football, talk about income from television, corporate sponsors, and prospects of takeover of top clubs by major media players" (Hay, 1998).
"Business firms from the start of the professional game in the 1880s understood there had been plenty of violence in the nineteenth century, and the theoretical underpinnings were acknowledged. "
