Football in the United States is a popular team sport played by two teams with a ball with pointed ends. The ball resembles the shape of a coconut. The origin of this game dates back to the late 19th century as college football which is rugby football’s American version. However, the main leagues playing American football include the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Football League (NFL).
Another popular game is the Canadian Football League (CFL), which has huge spectators and fans in the United States. However, America’s major professional football league is the America Football League (AFL). Later became the American Football Conference after merging with the older National Football League (NFL).
Two teams of 11 players on each side play on a grass field with a ball known as football. The only aim is to advance the ball to the end zone of the other team or kick the ball via a goalpost to score points. And the entire game is executed by officials and regulated by time and rules.
American Football’s Popularity
American football enjoys the highest number of spectators in the United States. In fact, television viewership ratings of this sport in America far exceed other sports’ ratings. The National Football League’s championship game is the Super Bowl. It’s broadcasted in more than 150 other countries and watched by about half of U.S. television households.
Fascinatingly, many fans throw parties, inviting family and friends over to eat and watch the game together. Many even consider it the most important day for “stay-at-home parties.”
On the other hand, college football has a different fan base throughout North America. There are four stadiums for college football – Beaver Stadium, Ohio Stadium, Neyland Stadium, and Michigan Stadium, with over 100,000 seats that sell out regularly. High school football games even have over 10,000 spectators in certain areas.
The Long-standing Tradition & Craze for Football
The weekly high-school and college football event held in autumn includes cheerleaders, marching bands, and parties. And it’s a significant cultural part of small-town America. Another interesting fact is that high school football leagues traditionally take place on Friday, professional games on Sunday, and college football on Saturday.
Many youth teams and amateur clubs play football recreationally. However, players are paid to play in leagues for several “semi-pro” teams. Fans with giant cartoons with a lot of passion and energy plump themselves in the stadium. The urge and yearning to compete and win displayed by the players and expressed by the fans hold up the spirit of this game.
So stay tuned for the matches on the line! Get the tickets to the game and dress yourself up in a tee-shirt, your favorite leggings, and pair it with a pair of sneakers.
