Although the public presentation of research results and data is still ahead of us (see future event planning), our work-in-progress had already called the attention of Portuguese media. Interims results came to public light in:
|Newspaper article of the Portuguese daily `O Público´ (31.08.2008)|
25-min documentary about Portuguese emigrants in Andorra (“A minha pátria é o futebol português”), directed by Jaime Cravo (ReporTV) and aired several times during the whole months of May 2009 at SportTV1, SportTV2 and Sport TV3.
REPORTV’s "A minha pátria é o futebol português" (My homeland is Portuguese Football), realized by Jaime Cravo (data of airtime: 30th Abril and 1st May on SPORTV) reveals the impact of football amongst the Portuguese emigrants in Andorra, including comments of Dr. Nina Clara Tiesler. It explains that football means much more than a simple game for many Portuguese emigrants. Besides that football is one of the daily main conversation topics (among fans and others), hobby, object of happiness and pain and /or attitude and sense of life, the documentary underlines the Portuguese domination in the professional sector of football in Andorra. In this context, the influence of Portuguese emigrants spreading this sport is discussed, which also exemplifies their active role in diaspora communities in relation to football.
