Synopsis

Looks at the way in which soccer has gained immense popularity in the United sta tes. shows how matches are presented-with a ground commentator: instant television playback on a giant screen, a 'shootout' rule which prevents a drawn result, and a variety of pre-match attractions. There is no crowd violence because the eighteen major clubs are separated by vast distances, so the teams's supporters do not travel to away matches.
