The growth of US soccer is happening before our eyes. Curiously, the world’s most popular game has never swept through America like with almost every other country across the globe. Basketball, football and baseball have dominated the sporting landscape, leaving very little room for soccer.
However, things are beginning to change. With the introduction of the internet and greater global coverage, it is easier to keep tabs on a sport that does not have an American epicentre, unlike American football, baseball and basketball. And so, the growth of soccer in North America has flourished.
Soccer has grown at a sensational rate since the turn of the Millenium, breaking into the most-watched and covered sports in the country.
