This year 204 countries tried to get into the world cup and that is just countries. It is just amazing to think of how many people play the sport of soccer in each of these countries and how many people watch and enjoy soccer in all of these countries. There also many associations inside each country like the United States has the Major League Soccer. I believe soccer is the most popular sport or else they wouldn’t have their own championship of the whole world. It just goes to show you that soccer is getting more and more popular.
In the summer of 2007 Canada was hosting one of the biggest soccer tournaments in the world, the u20 Men’s FIFA World Cup. It was the first time that Canada was the host of a major soccer competition. Many argue that after hosting this event, soccer started exploding in Canada. The general secretary of the CSA also shares this view; in an interview he says Montopoli acknowledges 2007 (when Canada hosted the FIFA U-20 World Cup) as an important year for the sport in this country, calling it “the jumping off point”.

Brazil achieved this feat first and won their third world cup in 1970 and in 1983 the cup was stolen. In 1971, the FIFA world cup trophy was founded.
With all of the stress of finals, AP classes, and friend drama, it’s difficult to find a place where I can escape. The stage has provided me that place. Theatre, music and dance have consistently shown me the world through fresh eyes, and have given me the chance to be truly happy. My life wouldn’t be complete without it.
