Best Answer

Soccer is increasing in popularity in Australia thanks in part to immigrants from Europe who have brought their love of soccer with them. The most obvious example are immigrants from the UK; also Australia is home to many Greeks, Italians and people from the former Yugoslavia. The same thing is happening in the United States as the hispanic, soccer-loving population grows.
