    As someone who lives in Europe and also from here. Sometimes, I’m not really into soccer mostly for some specific teams. My father is really into soccer though.

    ^must be Murican. Cuz the rest of the world call the sports' 'Football'. Also on side note, why does they call it 'American Football' despite they only use a kick(er) only at Kickoff and whenever they got near the opponent goal/thouchdown line(which is even rare thing) ??

    I usually watch the german Bundesliga (since I am from Germany), but I don’t have much interest in other leagues, aside of CL.

    The Bundesliga is currently on break, the reason? Corona.

    @RizYun I’m with you the “American Football” isn’t really “Football.”

    Soccer. The American term to distinguish what the rest of the world calls football from its hand-egg aka American Football. :blob_grin:

    "Football"
    And TBH this is the first time I ever saw some call it "European soccer".
    But, most leagues are currently on break, if not all right about now, so really nothing to follow currently

    I see matches if I'm in someone else's house and they are watching a match and I have nothing better to do... Might as well watch it with them, at least it's free entertainment~

    I don't care much for Soccer in general though~

    I'm in New Zealand and we've called rugby union football since we adopted it as a national sport and it became woven into our sporting identity. Until around the '00s here football was rugby and your football was our soccer. The term originated from England by the way. We didn't make it up, we just used it to differentiate between our nation's preferred sport at the time and one that wasn't. In the US football usually means American football. In Australia it normally refers to AFL/Aussie Rules. Now football is a blanket term here and people refer to each code however they please.

    I don't watch soccer unless I'm with friends and they're watching it. It's a good sport. I prefer to follow other sports though.

    Love soccer too, hope I would be able to watch matches live in the near future. I often check football soccer live scores on https://www.xscores.com/soccer and follow the latest news. It is a provider of live scores, results, fixtures, standings and statistics.
