Title A brief history of the Swedish sports movement : from the 19th century to the present
Author(s) Norberg, Johan R
Date 2011
English abstract
This article sketches the development of voluntary organized sports in Sweden from its establishment in the late 19th century to the present, using the concept of “popular movement” as a theoretical framework. Important questions are: when and how did sports actually adopt the forms of a popular movement? Which criteria were first fulfilled and which ones took longer to complete? Finally, will sports in Sweden retain its character of a popular movement in the future?
