A game of passion
Some other sports illustrate examples passion to the same extent as futbol. The stadiums are usually flocked by cheering spectators; and before the television, more people watch carefully, and most of the time with great enthusiasm.
Goodison Park was later built in the late 19th century in England with the aim of hosting futbol matches. The FA Cup finals played between Bolton Wanderers, and 37,000 spectators in 1894 moderately attended Notts County. A landmark in futbol arenas is the building of Maracanã Stadium. The imposing sport ground in Rio de Janeiro was built in 1950 to accommodate 200,000 people. Other sports have never seen arenas of that capacity being built to host their games.
The ideal modern competitions
Apart from Olympic Games, there are no other sports events that can currently measure themselves with FIFA World Cup. FIFA World Cup’s first edition was played in the year 1930 in Uruguay. Ever since World War II, it has been returning after every four years. In 1991, the first Women’s World Cup was held in China, and since then it also returned after every four years.
Currently, the largest global tournament for clubs is known as the Champions League. It has been played since 1992.
Globalization of the largest sport in the entire world
During the late 19th Century, a few national teams of futbol existed whereby Scotland, and England had been active teams which played matches against themselves in the 1870s. Recently, there are 211 world wide associations which are included in the FIFA which is the world governing arm of the sport. Additional evidence of globalization can be seen when the nations increase their participation to determine World Cup qualifiers.
The regions of the world have been partitioned into six confederations namely CAF (Confederation Africaine de Futbol), OFC (Oceania Futbol Confederation) AFC (Asian Futbol Confederation), CONMEBOL (Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol), CONCACAF (The Confederation of North, Central America, and Caribbean Association Futbol), and UEFA(Union des Associations Européennes de Futbol ).
Like that the current era of futbol has begun. Though, the story of futbol in the scheme of things is likely just beginning. And thus, the history of futbol was over and the current age was ready. If you enjoyed this series if you could like the article, and share it would be appreciated.
