THE ALLROUNDER is a new kind of sports site, for fans who know there’s more to sport.
We won’t analyze last weekend’s action, make predictions for the upcoming season, or pass along rumors about trades and transfers. Instead, The Allrounder looks at how sport impacts communities, shapes culture, and taps bodies and emotions.
Our writers regularly contribute to academic journals and major media outlets. They speak at international conferences, and they’re interviewed for radio and TV. The Allrounder gathers their expertise at one spot. We expect that you’ll learn something new about how sport shapes our world, and that you’ll gain a different view of your favorite games.
The Allrounder also goes around the world.
Our writers are based in Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, London, Melbourne, Seattle, Singapore, Toronto, and points in-between.
They’ll share their expertise on games in the neighborhood, and they’ll offer insight on global sport, politics and culture.
Whether you’ve been transferred overseas for work, started a new year as an international student, or you’re up in the middle of the night watching matches on another continent, The Allrounder offers an expert guide to the world’s different sporting cultures.
If you have a question, suggestion, or even a compliment, we’d be happy to hear from you.
