As a popular and transnational sport, football is a ʽlaboratory' of special interest to investigate the link between migrants and host communities. In France, this sport is presented as a vehicle for integration and citizenship to benefit young people from migrant backgrounds. This empirical study allows an understanding of the ambivalence and the forms of integration of immigrants through sport in France. It explores the practice of sport by football players of North African and Turkish ori-gins in Alsace, a region in the north-east of France. This article investigates more specifically Turkish migrants (first migrant community in Alsace) in order to assess whether people from this population group together by origin or not in the prac-tice of amateur football. We use the results of a survey combining qualitative and quantitative approaches and a synthesis of the author’s research.
Keywords: migrants; integration; football; Turkish; community; identity building.
