Soccer In America – Why Isn’t It As Popular As Football In The Rest Of The World?

It is worth taking a look at the nature of sport, in particular team sports, in the USA to really understand where I am coming from on this. You see around the world there are a few sports which really catch the imagination not just of nations, but of continents. Football is the premier example of this infectious love for a game that can change lives.

Take Brazil as an example of what football means around the world. How many people can tell you anything at all about one of the largest countries on the globe – Amazon rain forest and… oh yeah, football.

Pele is the undisputed king of football and sums up everything สูตรลับของ UFABET about Brazil to the outside world. An ordinary boy with extraordinary skill, went on to become the best known footballer ever. The name ‘Pele’ is familiar to every young boy in Europe, Asia and Africa – he’s the player they want to become, in the game he wanted to play. But in America the children grow up wanting to play a sport that will probably never see them known outside of their own backyard!

American Football : Almost solely played in the US and yet one of the biggest sports in America. It’s impossible to imagine that this game could have been devised from anything other than Rugby, with a huge helping of protective padding to enable even the wimpy boys to join in! All that protection and a separate team for offence, defence and kicking – and yet it’s stilled played at such a pace that it takes nearly four hours to get through.
