    All of the good American athletes play the other 3 major sports instead and that's always going to be a problem for soccer in America

    MLS is now importing European soccer players
    as well as top ones from Latin America to attract more viewers and fanatics

    I also think the problem comes when America doesn't win in the men's soccer team LOL
    therefore they do not find that sport appealing

    but when it comes to the women's soccer team, you will have millions of Americans tuning in to support them

    Viewership of Women’s World Cup final exceeds 14 million on Fox
    "According to a statement from Fox Sports, citing data from Nielsen, approximately 14.3 million U.S. viewers tuned in to the final match on television, compared to 11.4 million for the 2018 Men's World Cup Final, a 22% U.S. viewership boost"

    "Telemundo’s 1.6 million watching Sunday set a Spanish-language Women’s World Cup record for an event that was without Mexico as a participant. The previous mark was 1.3 million for the 2015 U.S.-Japan Women’s World Cup final."

    Soccer will eventually win. People not exposed don't get it .. yet

    Women's soccer is the gateway drug.

    Impossible.

    First, amerindians are badly footballers. Just look how Bolivians and Peruvians rarely win anything. Your hispanics are Central Americans and Mexicans (I have never seen they winning anything on football)

    Second, mexicans, especially mexican-americans rarely watch football matches, I should know more mexican teams than themselves.

    Third, football in US is only strong amongst women, it is seen as a female sport and female sports are not followed by anyone.

    Maybe not the most popular sport, but in a decade soccer will part of the bis sport in usa. But it will not be due to the hispanic immigration.

    I don't think the kind of Mexicans that are immigrating to the US en masse are the type who attend or watch professional soccer matches.

    Just because the stadiums get full during soccer matches, doesn't mean it's a popular sport in the US. Even if they like soccer, they also like and/or prefer Football, Basketball and Baseball. Have you been to Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles? 50,000+ fans at the stadium during home games, and the majority of them Hispanics.
