Urban youth patrons of improvised viewing centers in Southwest Nigeria
The need for entertainment and leisure among youths more especially as it relates to European football matches in Nigeria necessitated the establishment of football viewing centres to cater for their needs. While this can be seen as a welcome development, it also raises questions about the youths who come to watch European football matches within the halls. Apart from watching European league matches, what other forms of social relationships are created and recreated in these viewing centres? Indeed, what kinds of youth subculture are produced? In what ways have their subculture impacted on them as youths, other youths and the wider society as a whole. This study therefore seeks to answer these research questions in a study to be conducted in Ado Ekiti south west nigeria.
