  1. So, let’s ask the obvious question Alex, will the hype around the World Cup help inspire more US interest in soccer BEYOND THE YOUTH LEVEL? There is clearly a talented athletic ‘pool’ in our country, but many of the best and brightest athletes stray to other sports.

    Thoughts?

    Great blog and BEAT ENGLAND.

    • Hello Halliday-
      I think ABC and ESPN, plus other sponsers see that the World Cup can help them branch out to younger audiences and a wide range of consumers. But, as for the World Cup inspiring interest beyond the youth level for soccer-I don’t think so. I know I watch soccer due to my background in the sport and I feel as if others that will watch more then just the US games are also in that boat-there are always exceptions though. The Cup may gain first time viewers-but spreading soccer into America and gaining viewership thats rallys with America’s other sports, well soccer has a few more years to come.

  2. What channels will this be broadcasted on because I might watch it?

  3. Thank you for letting me know that Alex!
