Proceeding from the example of Romanian football, this paper argues that football is a symbol that manifests itself ritualistically in today's Romanian society. Along the presentation of typical local actors, actions and locations, the author formulates the hypothesis that football games organised on a weekly basis are part of the turnerian social drama, which present the struggle between different big social groups in a symbolic way. Our paper is based on the content analysis of the Romanian specialised media, therefore it is only logical that the author also touches upon the structure of the ideal typical discourse on football, which concerns
social relationships in its meaning.
