Colombia has stood out in history as having a very passionate fan base. Realizing how much of a positive image it does for the nation given by the negative stereotypes of drug cartels, it really brings out a passionate group. It also has very talented players that have made a impact in world football/soccer which you should look in wikipedia for more information.

England invented Football in 1863... and since its hugely popular pretty much every country in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia...Mexico and Australia

Brazil no doubt about it their football team kicks butt.

England has the highest average attendances for club games in Europe. Manchester United sell out practically every home game, whereas the likes of Barcelona and Ac Milan rarely manage to fill their (albeit larger) stadiums.


Turkey I guess every year broadcast tv channel pay Turkish football federation 250 million euros because in Turkey football is religion

As the worlds biggest sport Football is also becoming huge in our most populous state NSW more people are registered football players than any other although its the most difficult sport requiring the most talent to make it, we have the skills to play football as proven with a few who have previously been successful especially in the EPL.

Football is the common name given to whatever form of football is most popular in that country, including Association Football (soccer), Rugby, American Football (NFL), and so on. It so happens that soccer is the football game most popular in Kerala and in many other countries.

The real name of soccer is "Association Football" and is generally referred to in most countries as just Football. Association football is the most popular football variant worldwide, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world. The modern game was codified in England following the formation of The Football Association, whose 1863 "Laws of the Game" created the foundations for the way the sport is played today.
