Football Inside

A film by Michele Cirigliano


FOOTBALL INSIDE enters the heart of football culture and uses the dressing room as the central stage. By putting on their jerseys, professionals, women, juniors and seniors take on different roles for the duration of a game. The joy of the game unites them all.  

The film shows the National League A women's team from GC Zurich, SC Kriens from the Challenge League, the C-juniors of FC Blue Stars Zurich and the veteran team of FC Wettswil-Bonstetten in the dressing room. A unity is created from single individuals. By putting on the football jersey, each and every one of them is given their task. Everyone faces the pressure of the game, but also their own fear. The film shows how teams come together, forget everyday life and become part of a greater unity through the ritual of football.

«Everyone is afraid. It is increased nervousness in front of a task that could be a little too big for me. I try not to call this feeling fear, but positive challenge where I can grow, where I can only win and not lose.»
Marco Wiget, Vizecaptain SC Kriens
