Why do we behave differently in a football stadium?

Jacco van Sterkenburg and Jasmin Seijbel in podcast on supporter behaviour

Emotion plays a major role in a football stadium. It often even takes over from our ratio. We are generally louder, more enthusiastic, sometimes more hot-tempered and - let's face it - a little less well-mannered than outside the football stadium. Why is that? Prof. dr. Jacco van Sterkenburg and Jasmin Seijbel (Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication) reflect about this topic in the live talkshow and podcast Ken Je Dat Niet Horen Dan? The talkshow is a monthly theatrical and scientific research into what it means to be a Feyenoord supporter.
