Soccer is the most popular ball sport in most countries, except the US.
It can be played anywhere. You don't even need a ball, a pair of rolled up socks will do.
Tthere was even a joky quiz show in Britain called "Jumpers for Goalposts" about soccer.
English Jumper = American sweater
Little boys (and big ones)playing pickup soccer put down their sweaters as goalposts, much to the disgust of their Moms who have to wash them.
It is unknown in Continental Spain. However there have been many major leaguers of Hispanic ancestry such as Roberto Clemente, Keith Hernandez, Sammy Sosa, etc Most hail from Puerto Rico, or Santo Domingo, or possibly Mexico, with no known Continental (Spaniards). There were ballplayers of Cuban descent, pre-Castro. Naturally the (vest-pocket dictator) knocked out Baseball as too ( Yanqui) oriented!
If by football you mean soccer it is popular all over the world it is no more popular in 'Hispanic' places as it is in African/European/Eastern places, it is the United States of America the do not follow the trend so the question should be why is football not popular in the US
