Topic: Why did soccer have problems spreading in America (up to WWII?)?
Soccer did not grow popular in the US until the 1960s because of the attitude of these people. Americans often like being first in almost everything, and the fact they were not good in this sport killed their pursuit of the game. Americans were also late to endorse the sport, thus, did not find it ideal for marketing and business. Americans were also into rough sports such as American football, thus, viewed soccer as a soft sport.
