America) is the most widely played and watched team sport in the world.

regularly played football in more than 200 countries in every
part of the world.

requirements have no doubt aided its spread and growth in popularity. IN

increasingly in Asia and Africa football evokes great passions and plays
an important role in the life of individual fans, local communities and
In the United States more kids now play
