teams historically identified with
Ulster loyalism and with the British nationalist right provide
a focus for
the display of loyalist and unionist political allegiances.
While the bulk
of supporters' clubs' websites avoid any political references
a number of
soccer-related websites are political to varying degrees. While
paramilitary-related content others provide links to directly political
websites. These sites have a particularly high attrition rate and six of
the seven sites
listed below were defunct by March 2005.
