The Next Great European Sport

Sunday, November 4, 2012
Soccer is the major sport over in Europe; however, a new craze has begun. European football as taken off and promises to become as big a sport there as soccer. Many people in other countries outside of Europe, such as the Unites States, do not even realize that football is played in the European countries. When traveling to European countries visitors are quite surprised to find football stadiums as well as soccer arenas. Soccer will most likely always be Europe’s favorite sport, but football has been growing steadily in the past several years. And they have gained a faithful following of supporters as well.

The European football league does not compare to the United States football league by any means. Their stadiums are much smaller than the United States counterparts; however, this does not discourage the players or their supporters. In fact, many people think that the European stadiums are better than the Unites States stadiums even if they are much smaller in size. However, the placers in Europe play just as well as the players in the United States, and they keep their supporters coming back for more.


The league schedules the season much like the United States league. Different teams play each other in a battle of the best. Like the Superbowl, the European league also has a championship game at the end of the season. The two best teams rival head to head for the status of champions. The championship game is no doubt the biggest football event of the season.

Fans, who can not make every game now have the option to watch games via the internet. Each European football team has a website set up for their fans. On these websites, fans can watch the latest games played by their favorite teams. They can also keep up with the current statistics of each of the players and the teams’ current ranking for the season. They have also set up areas within the website for fans and players to communicate. The websites are updated constantly so that fans can have the most current information available. This has helped to increase the football following.

The players of the European football league are reported to have more heart and soul in the game. Many experts believe that this is because they are paid much less the their United States counterparts. However their passion for the game and their supporters keeps them coming back each season. This passion that the players show for the game is the reason that the following grows more and more each year.

It may take some time, but it is believed that the European football league will become as big as the American football league. With the technology of worldwide television broadcasts and the internet, the league is sure to continue flourishing in the next decade to come. Soccer will always be the most beloved sport on the continent, but football is quickly becoming a close second. Football has arrived in Europe and it is here to stay.
