Abstract [en]

This article explores the relationship between soccer and diasporic resistancethroughan examination of Club Deportivo Palestino, a professional footballclubbased in Santiago de Chile.The first 'Club Sportivo Palestina' was founded by Palestinian immigrants in the Chilean capital in 1916. Currently, Palestino plays in the Chilean first division and is among the top teams in the country. Meanwhile, the club is often claimed to represent the Palestinian people and has beena foundational pillar of a diasporic communityto whichthe Palestinianstruggle is a central mobilizing force. In this article, which is based on long-term fieldwork, I seek to show that the political potential in this kind of diaspora club lies first and foremost inrepresentation, and, furthermore, that notions of resistance in this case are closely tied to a wider struggle for an enduring Palestinian presence.
