Abstract The essay takes a closer look at football (soccer) rivalries within a migrant, transnationalist sporting environment, focusing on Australia as an example. Themes of transnationalism, diasporic activism and the essence of football (soccer) rivalry, including its violent and integrationist manifestations, are considered. This discussion also insists that any understanding of such themes cannot be divorced from the broader political divisions manifested in the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia which were subsequently carried on in the immigrant society.
