July 18, 2017 6:24 pm

Unless you live the life of a hermit and have no contact with the outside world, you will be under no illusion that football is the nation’s favourite sport. It’s one of those sports that brings together people from all walks of life and is something that everyone can enjoy, regardless of their age or gender.

Of course, not everyone in the UK is a hardcore football fan or even follows a particular team. But, you don’t have to be a dedicated season ticket holder for a local team to enjoy football.

If you’re thinking of taking up or learning more about a new sport on TV, it might surprise you to know that football could be a good idea for you! Here’s why you will secretly grow to love the sport enjoyed by millions of us in Britain (and beyond):

Football is an international sport

You might be forgiven for thinking that football is something typically enjoyed by people within the British Isles alone. Yet, it’s a sport followed and enjoyed by millions of individuals around the world. As with other pastimes like music, football is something you can enjoy without any language barriers getting in the way of your fun.

Even across the Atlantic, football (or “soccer” as the Americans call it) is a sport that is gaining popularity!

The rules of football aren’t complicated

Believe it or not, football is one of the more easier sports to figure out if you’re new to the rules. Sure, you could read a book about the sport or even watch some YouTube videos on the subject.

But, you won’t have to spend long learning about the mechanics of the game. That’s brilliant news if all you want to do is go out there and enjoy a game with your friends in the sunshine!

It’s a sport that helps you easily connect with others

 

Have you ever noticed that one of the things both men and women often talk about in social settings is football? Even if you aren’t a die-hard football fan, you will no doubt have talked about certain prominent footballers such as David Beckham or Wayne Rooney. You may have even heard about high-profile teams like Manchester United or Chelsea F.C. in the media.

Football is a sport that can help you discover new common interests with those you socialise with on a regular basis.

It’s easy to follow updates on your favourite teams

Thanks to the power of the Internet, it’s possible to get live and up-to-date information on the progress of teams during each season.

For example, most well-known news media websites have dedicated football and sports news sections. And let’s not forget that you could also follow a football blog to get opinions and reviews from like-minded fans and pundits.

Football is an accessible sport

If you prefer to play football than to watch it or follow a particular team, here’s another thing you will love about the sport. It’s an accessible one that is open to all! It doesn’t matter whether you are young, old, male, female, disabled or able-bodied. Football is a sport that is playable by anyone.

Of course, I could keep going on about many more reasons why you will love football. But, if this post hasn’t convinced you, go out there and play a friendly game with your pals or family members. I guarantee you will enjoy football!
