Abstract [en]

This article draws attention to two sports-based interventions carried out as part of the Midnight Football initiative and theplaces where they are conducted in two suburban areas in Sweden. Rather than approaching geographic place as simplya background and a context for sport-based interventions, we put place in the spotlight, scrutinising the very formationof place and its productive role in governing social policy. In line with a Foucauldian approach, and based on interviewsand ethnographic fieldwork, the aim of the article is to explore how the specific localities where interventions take placeare formed as governable domains. The analysis shows how place is constituted in association with sport sites, local youthoutreach and recruiting coaches. These places are made distinct from the rest of the surrounding cities via material andsymbolic borders, directing the movement of people within the urban geography. These differentiations underpin attributionsof the areas in terms of otherness and exclusion from the rest of society, localising a variety of problematisations tothe demarcated areas. Furthermore, the places are demarcated as being filled with danger, intertwined with narrativeschallenging such a discourse. In conclusion, the findings enable us not only to scrutinise how specific meanings are attributedto place and how place is formed, but also to explore the performative and governable potential of place.
