This work is focused on the analysis of environmental conditions in which the two organizational forms of local football club and foreign one operate. Analysis is based on the investigation of Moscow supporters’ forms of attachment. The main aim is to identify the key environmental conditions that cause emergence, maintenance and declining of forms of attachment. The theoretical frame is population ecology of organizations.

By conducting qualitative approach (semi-structured with supporters), it was found that fans of local football club have social, sports and leisure forms of attachment, while fans of foreign football club have only the sports one. Therefore, the environmental conditions for local football club and foreign one differ significantly.
