GIL, Gastón Julián. "El equipo de la ciudad": Las narrativas de cohesión en el fútbol marplatense. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2003, n.4, pp.139-151. ISSN 1850-373X.

This paper presents a recent football narrative that has been imposed in Mar del Plata. It is directed at "inventing" a new referent for local football identity, behind the slogan of "the city team". This narrative of cohesion was imposed by different agents in the field of football who have tried to construct a new symbol of identity that would express the sports identity of Mar del Plata. Journalists, managers, politicians, supporters and players have insisted in the idea of forming a team which could crystallise the identity of the city, reversing the mechanisms of fission generated by the existence of more than 30 clubs with powerful rivalries. Through the analysis of two entrepreneurial projects that involved two of the cities teams (Alvarado and Aldosivi), I try to shed light on the mechanisms which operate in the construction of sports identities. The divergences that appeared between the wishes of business -considered as rational and modernising proposals- and the logic of supporters in relation to this narrative of cohesion were never grasped as key parts of the problem. The supporters had never been considered as integral parts in the question, for which the agents of change renounced the search for possible discontinuities between the rationalities of the distinct social actors.
