The United States, the land of baseball and basketball, has recently taken up soccer.
With the National Basketball Association (NBA), Major League Baseball (MLB), and the National Football League (NFL) dominating the landscape, soccer has the potential to take over the country.
Messi is lighting the fire. Messi, the best soccer player in the world and the biggest star of all time, is moving to Inter Miami.
Messi’s move is shaking up the country. 토토사이트 Tickets for his debut are already sold out, and Miami’s official Instagram account has more than eight times the number of followers it had before. That’s in the top five of all US professional sports teams.
The good news for soccer in the US doesn’t stop with Messi. Starting in 2024, the country will host three consecutive major tournaments. The 2024 Copa America will be followed by the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup.
The culmination will be the 2026 World Cup of North and Central America. It will be 32 years since the United States hosted the 1994 tournament. The next World Cup will be even bigger, with 48 nations instead of 32.
The next World Cup will most likely be without Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr). However, Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) is considered the next soccer emperor, and with more countries in the tournament, we may even see Elling Holland (Manchester City). American soccer fans are in for a treat through 2026.
