This concluding chapter revisits the idea of football fandom as carnival, noting the limitations on this ‘mode of understanding’. It looks at the future of the carnival fan groups, considering the threats and opportunities going forward for this sub-culture of football support. Finally it argues that the authorities should recognise this sub-culture and the value it brings to the wider football ‘experience’.
