WRP Presents: Le Classique – PSG vs OM and the Sociology of Football

Robert Quinn is joined by sociologist Patrick Mignon to discuss “Le Classique” – the most heated rivalry in French football.

The Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille fixture represents not just football, but a social divide and clash against Jacobinism.

Patrick Mignon is a sociologist and the former head of sociological research at France’s National Institute of Sport, Expertise, and Performance. He is the author of the 1998 work “Le Passion du Football”.

This episode was hosted and produced by Robert Quinn and created by World Radio Paris.
