For many it is not a mystery that the sport of soccer is the physical activity that has more followers around the world, which raises passions, emotions, joys, rivalries, etc; All that is what football brings with it.
But why does this happen? What is it that makes this sport paralyze cities and activities, that raises heated discussions between brothers, parents, children, friends, strangers, all of them with different points of view.
In this publication, from a very particular point of view, I will analyze the reason for this event, because football is the most watched sport worldwide, all aspects that make football the king in the world and that has more followers. I will explain below the events or things that influence this medium so that football is what it is today:
Important values are promoted such as: companionship, team spirit, respect, improvement, effort and discipline. Touching the point of values would delve into how important society is for sport since it plays a fundamental role in how successful football is today, since society itself is the one that instills love from an early age or heartbreak to its members towards this beautiful sport.
But just as society can positively influence the acceptance and success of football, it can make the same population can be divided or disintegrated by the various comments that citizens freely make about this sport. Society has an important role, if not the most important, in the success of football since the population is the consumer of this sport.
It also needs little equipment and can be played by anyone anywhere; from this last one my second foundation and very personal opinion is born by which I think that soccer is the most popular sport among the hundreds of sports that exist.
2. Accessible and Cheap
Football, compared to other sports, is easier to practice, that is, it is very accessible and anyone can play it, just go outside and you can find children, young people or even adults practicing sports in the streets. You can also go to free courts integrated in sports made by the government these spaces also serve to practice it without any restriction or obstacle that prevents the exercise of this sport.
Cheap, this is another fundamental thing for this sport to be so popular. From one way or another we started practicing it, with plastic bottles, moored rags, punched balls, etc. Somehow from a very early age we are getting acquainted with this sport so beautiful that football is.
Cheap also because a soccer ball does not exceed the $ 100.00 price, which compared to other sports in which apart from buying the ball or ball to practice it requires separate equipment to not get hurt and that increases the amount of money invested.
3. Massive Means of Communication
Television, radio, newspapers, magazines, internet, thanks to these media, football is the most popular sport. There is not a day when these means do not talk about football or everything related to it.
A clear example is the sports programs on television, most of the time that the program lasts is destined for football, and leaves other sports in the background, this clarifies how important soccer is. Not to mention the time allocated for football in commercials for both TV and radio, especially sponsoring brands of the same soccer teams.
On the internet something similar happened flood us with soccer advertising but on the internet through banners and things like that.
In the case of newspapers, it does not change much with respect to the aforementioned media, they have a section dedicated to sports in which they talk mostly about football and on special occasions, talking about important football matches both nationally and internationally, the first page of the newspaper to bring out the past in this event, as well as mention that there are newspapers specialized in sports content in which there is also more talk about national and international football than other sports.
