What African nations play hockey or baseball for that matter?

 

 

Even in cold weather climates, futbol is played. You lose.

What's the biggest sport in the Caribbean? Which sport has more recognizable Asian stars? Who has more Americans? Europe will fall soon enough, Africa is unimportant.

Futbol is by far the most popular sport in the world. Wake me up when baseball actually forms a World Cup, let alone makes it successful.

 

 

World Cup = most popular and anticipated sporting event in the world.

America will never cherish futbol like the rest of the world does

 

sorry

We won't cherish like others, but once we win a World Cup (and we will...one of the next 4, methinks) things will pick up a little bit.

 

Once we win a Cup, that event itself will become much bigger here. You saw what happened in 02 when we actually put in a good showing and those games were on at 4 and 5 am.

 

I believe we're in the top 7 in the World now and once Adu starts playing for us, Beasley and Donovan continue to mature, and we put Tim Howard in goal, we're gonna have a pretty damn good team.

 

We've got a lot of quality young talent too.

 

I don't think the MLS will ever be a major success, but it seems to be doing okay. They just can't get crazy and expand too much.

To end this "Most popular sport" discussion... Neither Futbol nor Beisball are the most popular... Volleyball is, with 998 million participants worldwide and 218 affiliated national federations. It is followed by Basketball with 400 M participants and 211 affiliates, Table Tennis with 300 M and 186 affiliates and finally Futbol (Soccer) with 242 and 204. Baseball ranks seventh on the list with only 60 Million and 110 affiliates.

 

Nevertheless, no one can deny that more people watch Futbol worldwide than anyother sport and there is no other sports event, except for the Olympics, that is as big as the world cup... It may not be the case in the US, but the US is not the world, contrary to what you may believe.

 

Here is a little history behind the Most Popular Sport in the planet. :mischief

 

 

Popularity of Soccer Around the World I am going to talk about the most popular sport in the world: football. Now, you may be having visions of huge quarterbacks, dressed up in their padding and helmets, parading down the field during the Super Bowl. But the other kind of football, the football the rest of the world knows, has no padding or helmets. This other football is known in America as soccer. In more than 175 countries across the globe, football, or soccer, rates as the number 1 national sport. Football dates back as far as thousands of years ago. There are records that show that ancient civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and China (among others) played an age-old form of football with a stuffed leather ball. Early games in Old England were like mob riots. There were no rules; it was anything goes! The games were so rowdy and violent that many English rulers tried to outlaw them. But it didn?t work. In fact, English travelers took the game with them, spreading it all around the globe. But there needed to be rules. In 1863 the Football Association was formed, or FA, in England.

Last world cup USA got lucky because it was FIXED

 

the last world cup was easily the worst ever.

 

keep it where its at ... in Europe or in South America ... anywhere else is just a mistake

 

next world cups

 

06 in Germany (thank god ... its only 2 years away ::chills:: )

 

10 in South Africa (should be good, afterall africa is the birthplace of the sport)

Hidetoshi Nakata is bigger in the asian world than Ichiro

 

 

and BTW Africa is very important in the soccer world, they have great teams and great players ... and one of the most fun cups to watch the African Cup (all african national teams going at it)

 

 

an African nation is closer to winning a world cup than the US.... freddy adu is actually Ghanian :thumbup

I am glad to see some nice futbol fans here. While sports like volleyball and etc may have higher proportions of players, there are reasons for that. However they cannot get anywhere close to the popularity of futbol.

 

Its been once again shown how global futbol truly is in this world. I am very happy that people are actually taking of their damn American shaded glasses and seeing the truth.

Hey, Jack, this is America and if we don't like soccer, then that's that. Take your pansy-sport loving ass back to Mexico.

 

Remember the Alamo!
