Abstract

The relationship between sport and nostalgia is both a strong and an abiding one. The longevity of their close association is founded on the fact that each one nourishes and feeds off the other, equating to a perfect symbiosis. At first glance, sport and nostalgia would appear to be rather strange bedfellows - the former tending to be more strongly associated with the young; the latter with the older generation - but bearing in mind that people's positive memories of the past often relate to sporting achievements, perhaps it is not so surprising that sport can be an important subject of nostalgia.
