For quite sometime the American people did not embrace soccer as much as they loved their football, Basketball and Baseball. The American fans couldn't get use to "no hands on" in the sport of soccer. Consequently, it was difficult to get the interest of the American people and those playing in soccer teams played on football fields (not really large enough or tough enough grass) to play on properly. Keeping up a soccer field is far greater work than keeping up a football field. The turf is different and a great area is needed for the soccer teams to run around. The move to "soccer-specific" stadiums has been seen by many as essential to building up attendance and fan support for MLS. So far every team that has built its own stadium has not only seen its game attendance rise, but also has helped MLS to come closer to the ultimate goal of breaking even financially. The Los Angeles Galaxy were the first team to make a profit, and other MLS teams are sure to follow eventually. MLS announced its first non-US team may be based out of a brand new, public and privately funded, provincially approved soccer-specific stadium in Toronto. The stadium will be owned by the City of Toronto and will be operated by the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. The new stadium would hold approximately 20,000-25,000 fans, and cost roughly 80 million Canadian. This team would be one of two potential expansion teams to join the league in the 2007 season, with MLS receiving bids from several other major cities for league franchises. There is no doubt that the U.S. will get into the business of soccer. Believe it or not, other than the U.S., when there is a soccer game going on anywhere in the world fans of other countries switch over to watch the games. Marcy

Well, obviously the US National Team is. In the Major League Soccer (MLS), Seattle is a humongous hot-spot for soccer. It is known for "Soccer City of America" for it's committed and supportive fans.

Yes actually David Beckham has popularized soccer in the US... or it is just a coincindince that he started playing soccer for MLS when people in the US started to get exposure to soccer because since the 1990's soccer in the US has been growing in popularity rapidly. But we still are no where match in popularity to most country's around the world since soccer is the most popular sport in the world. And most people think that we don't have the popularity in soccer from the lack of exposure we just started playing a little while ago while in other country's soccer has been going on for a while now. Back to David eckham though, some people think that the 28 year old midfield player has made US popularity in soccer more popular but most people think it's from his extrodinary appearance and by that people like him from his "hottness", but I just like him from his extrodinary skill and plays on the field.... Well Slayer726 signing out!
In the US, I would use yards.
Soccer is the single most popular sport in the world. Only in the US is it not followed with the fervor of most countries.
