In Luxembourg, 14 out of 100 inhabitants are Portuguese, but who would have guessed it? Why is such a large immigrant community so poorly connected? What are the rules governing this behaviour? How do the contours of identity take shape? Every Sunday the Portuguese community gathers in football fields around the country to watch and encourage their own players down on the ground — grounds they rent from the Luxembourg clubs. The Federation of Portuguese Associations in Luxembourg (FAPL), which organises its own two-division championship, is a non official sporting federation wich exists alongside the FLF, the Luxembourgish football federation. The existence of these two federations is a reflection of the two communities, communities that coexist, in the same country, without dialogue, without seeing each other.
