The objective of this article is to deepen on the football clubs of the shipyard from an anthropological perspective. The anthropology of sport has had several stages in its historical development. Sport today has become an allegorical sociocultural phenomenon in human groups. Specifically, soccer has become the sport with the largest audience, followers and practitioners around the world. In this research, the ethnographic method was used for the description-interpretation of the socio-cultural and contextual phenomena of soccer as a symbolic universal language in the clubs of the shipyard. This method enabled the collection of data and determination of the meeting points of the people involved and identification of the rules to be considered in the investigation. The results of the anthropological study provided essential elements that are manifested, specifically the parties, around a national football championship. In the observation made several ideological manifestations could be verified, the coded gestures of the different groups and popular expressions. The latter are the subject of debate with a specific purpose whether political, religious, sports, among others. As a result, the anthropological study of shipyard clubs has several aspects that should be studied by anthropology, given its sociocultural role to be a sport that mobilizes human groups to consider a universal passion.
