COPA90 set out to better understand football fans who are now transforming the football landscape.
We focused on those young UK fans already driving significant change, and poised to re-shape football fandom.
A shift in the balance of power – away from traditional lean-back football content formats in favour of fan created and fan distributed content, will coincide with a move away from traditional voices of authority.
The Modern Football Fan is aged 16 to 24, worldly, culturally curious and passionate – about football, but also about music and gaming.
