Soccer

One of my favourite sports of all time must be the game of soccer or “football” as understood by most countries outside of North America.

It’s played on a massive field with 11 players spread out across the field leading it to be one of the most cardio intensive sports. Midfielders will have to run over 10 km in some matches.

Comparing this to a sport like baseball pales in comparison.

This sport, however a minor one in North America, is the most popular sport around the world played by almost all countries on the globe because of it’s simplicity. It is not just a sport, it’s more than that, it unites people across borders.

During the World Cup, it dominates attention globally for the entirety of the tournament.

Meanwhile, there are leagues in many different countries most notably Europe. They’re so many league with different divisions and so many teams it’s impossible to know them all.

But what I would say is the biggest tournament of them all is the Champions League where the best teams from the best leagues battle it out in 2-game series to see who is really #1.

Even though you may not know what a hat-trick (3 goals) or a brace (2 goals back to back) is, it doesn’t matter. Try it out or simply pick a team, follow them and enjoy, who knows they might just win it all.

Hope this helps!
