This paper explores the many dimensions to the apparently simple relationship between sport and English identity. Using historical and contemporary examples, it examines the absence of a straightforward English sporting identity, and the ways in which class, age, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality have influenced the kind of 'England' that any given sporting event involves.
