The introduction explains the rationale for this special edition by stressing the capacities of football to generate affects through objects and sounds. The sensory experiences, in particular those affects of sound and music, are multifaceted and diverse, but are also specific to football and the flows and intensities of the game. This special edition seeks to capture some of these affects and those of fans and supporters through a collection of different pieces of writing.
