Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis purpose is to fill a knowledge gap of research into football-related violence and media. The objective is to create an understanding of how football-related violence is portrayed in the Swedish tabloids Aftonbladet and Expressen.
To reach the desideratum we used a qualitative content analysis of 198 articles concerning football-related violence. To analyse the results we used theories regarding ‘Framing’, ‘the three ‘I’s and the ‘Stigma-theory’.
The result from the initial analysis showed a heavy reliance on ‘frames’ by media outlets. This tended to make the news seem more sensational, dramatized and subsequently more readable than it otherwise would have been. When the articles are framed, the journalists’ use various keywords and metaphors to make an ordinary event into an exciting sports story that attracts readers.
