The Freee art collective have devised a football tournament as a dissensual intervention in the public sphere, first staged at NGBK Berlin earlier this month.

The project recodes football as a platform for opinion formation and disagreement by placing slogans where football star names and corporate sponsors’ logos normally are.

Teams are not selected by managers, merit or peer pressure but by individuals choosing a slogan to wear.

Fans who support a particular team, having no geographical name to shout, will wave scarves emblazoned with the slogan or chant the slogan together rivalled by the supporters of another team.
