I highly doubt you have traveled all over the world. Pretty sure "football" is the main sport for every country. Especially poor countries where the kick soccer balls around at age 5 guaranteed.
In the numbers
where are the numbers?
I bet NFLs numbers are much bigger ...
This is the worst troll/bait attempt I've ever seen.
It's by far the most popular.
Although the main reason for that by far is the fact that people with any financial status can play it and you can practice alone almost anywhere.
It's basically a sport for poor people, which most of the world is.
Truly horrendous troll thread, bit embarrassed for you tbh
It's amazing how sensitive you people get because your favourite sport isn't globally #1.
.......but but but only poor people like it. If the rest of the world was as rich as the great USA, NFL and baseball would easily be #1!!!!!!
In all honesty, soccer is the most popular because:
A) you need don't need to be a great athlete (anyone can play)
B) you can be from shitholes like Africa or South America and still play, because you only need feet, and something round.
C) 99% of the planet can relate to jogging and kicking a ball. No matter what country you're from, you do this as an infant.
It's global appeal is that everyone can understand. It's a simple sport. American football is not. It's difficult to understand, difficult to watch, and you need equipment.
While it might suck to watch soccer, it truly is the ultimate universal team sport. I can respect it, and the skill level is second to maybe Baseball and hockey, but unlike those sports, it requires nothing to participate.
I'm not American, but I do believe America has the best athletes on earth, and truly believe that if Americans ditched basketball and football, and focuses solely on soccer, they'd be the world Cup favourites every year.
Soccer/football has 4 billion fans
Why post that? Do you disagree? On what pints? Care to elaborate? Or is this all you have ? Let's debate on my points?
Thanks for the reply . Any thoughts ?
My attention was captured by the question posed in the title, but your name told me not to get my hopes up.
Which tells me this is a thinly-veiled pro-Conor thread. I'm ready to scroll down and see that McGregor's fight against Nate had more viewers than Amateur Tijuana Soccer League.
Shit! I just ate some bath salts I'd sprinkled on my popcorn, and that video was trippy as hell.
Soccer is the most popular in Europe, most Africa and most of South America. It tends to be secondary in the most populated countries on earth with us the Chinese and Indians all having our own sporting customs. Soccer is the most popular in more countries than anything else but it's far from universal.
Interestingly despite soccer originating in England, most of the English speaking world are the ones who prefer other sports. For example Football, basketball and baseball being numero one in the US, Rugby is number one in South Africa, Australia(though that map says cricket) and New Zealand, Hockey being number one in Canada, Cricket being number one in India.
St. Louis preparing for new MLS team.
Soccer or Association Football originated in Scotland, we just stole it off them and hush everything up, and claimed it was us that invented the game that is the most popular in the world.
