Football or Fútbol

Sports are a rather common source of entertainment around the world. Different geographical locations have their favorite sports, and often differ from one another.

Here in America, we love our football, but don’t care too much for soccer/futbol. Around the world the story is completely the opposite! While football began over 100 years ago in 1983, Futbol dates back more than 2,000 years. All those years later, we can see the popularity of each sport in this map above. A sport we cherish in the United States, isn’t nearly as highly regarded as its counterpart. Screen Shot 2017-12-05 at 11.00.13 AM

According to pledge sports, Soccer tops the list of the top sports in the world, followed by Basketball, Cricket, Tennis, Athletics, Rugby, Formula 1 Racing, Boxing, Ice Hockey, and Volleyball, and Golf.

American football doesn’t crack the list.
