Summary/Abstract: An analysis maintained in the Warburg spirit: depictions of football and war share certain features, namely, they present people at a time of almost unsurpassable physical and psychic excitement. The tangle of opponents, who in synchronic tension give vent to their energy, conceals a certain affiliation of forms, to which the activity of memory refers also on the football field. Images of matches constitute an archive of this extreme experience.
