Best Answer

Soccer is probably not as well attended in the US then other countries because it was introduced later. US's first popular sports were football, Basketball, and Baseball. Therefore, people in the US liked these sports more. As soccer was introduced to the US, more and more people began liking it. Eventually I can see soccer becoming as popular as basketball and football but i predict that it will take a couple years.
