Clearly football (soccer). No one cares about American football or the super bowl outside of the USA, although it is growing in popularity.

The football, or soccer in US is the No.1 definitely because of the simplicity of the game. If want to play football, all you need is four stick representing the goalpost, a ball and a flat area. That’s it. No huge goalposts, no bases, no need a special field/pitch or wearing a special uniform, no complex rules.

Originally in Europe and in Latin America playing football is a game for working class or even lower class people. I think George Weah said once: “If you come from a poor background in Africa and want a big break you only have two options: to be a football player or to be a politician. He was the first African football player who won the Ball d’Or and now he is the President of Liberia :)

Most people may argue that American football or basketball is the most popular sport. However, those who try to make arguments for those sports will be highly opposed by the fans of world football. World football is a global game that connects almost every single person on the planet.

It is pretty easy to understand and you don't need gears to play and enjoy the game.

For a start it's football and not soccer. The answer is in the name - you use your feet to kick a ball. American football should be called 'handball with a safety suit'. Of course football dominates! The only place that doesn't get it is white America who think that 'World Series' and 'Super Bowls' actually mean something.

Soccer has the highest paid players in the world, the most talented people on the world, and even the hardest working players in the world. For example, Messi had a hormone degenerative disease that made him grow at an astoundingly low rate, but that sure as hell didn't stop him.

I'm American but I hate living here and being forced fed to watch baseball, golf, car races, and the NFL. Absolutely ridiculous! They play all those lazy American sports on TV and barely any soccer. And even now the World Cup, golf and basketball still dominates on TV @$%@$%@@!!!
