Zagreb 041 has invented a new way to love and live football. And it thereby uncompromisingly defies all the “usual” trends against minorities and for a simple male image. It is thus unusually innovative in the field: In this democratically managed, inclusive, non-profit football club, migrants, displaced individuals, and locals play football together. The physical and mental development of children has priority over the contest. Thus, the members of the club succeed in attacking the value system of the dominant culture precisely in a location central for its reproduction.
