Description

Football is the most popular sport in Spain. Football or soccer, is Spain’s national sport and easily the country’s most important participant and spectator sport. Spanish football fans are among the most dedicated and fervent in Europe. Every town in Spain has a football team, and Spanish children learn to play football almost as soon as they can walk, with the most promising players being snapped up by the major clubs and coached from an early age in football schools.

 

Football is so popular that Spain has many sports newspapers devoted almost exclusively to football, where every aspect of the players’ public and private lives are analyzed and debated. All news bulletins include an item on football and the ‘sports section’ in most news is merely a euphemism for football. Football brings people of all ages together, bound under their love for the sport and their towns.
