Languages of publication
The paper links two fields of research: subcultural studies and sociology of sport. The aim of the paper is two-fold. First, it presents the current state of research of subcultures with a brief historical outline and theoretical ground. Second, it outlines sporting subcultures together with the specific tool for exploring them – the subcultural capital. The nature of subcultural capital, which is based on authentic subcultural practices, suggests possible further extension of subcultural studies which are often limited to youth and lifestyle sport communities. Thus, it indicates on going relevance of the concept of subculture which is questioned in contemporary post-subcultural studies.
