Abstract
This essay discusses a new occuring phenomenon in sports. Politics is becoming more dependent of sports and vice versa. Therefore the studying of the correlation between sports and politics, which in this case is football and politics, is of great importance. This essays chooses to focus solely FC Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao and how they as football clubs act as political actors in their each region. As research shows, these clubs have had a great impact on building national identeties in Catalonia and in the Basque Country. However, these regions are moving towards independence and this essay therefore focuses mainly on what impact these two football clubs may have on each region’s work for independence.
