(AUDIO) Soccer Could Crack the Top 5 of Major Sports in America

Dir. of the Boys Soccer program at IMG Academy joined the Booger and Ryan Show to discuss the growth of youth soccer in America.

Dean said that soccer has so much more exposure now in America than it did 40 years ago. Kids are starting to replicate their favorite players overseas. Dean said we are at the tipping point where you will see soccer change in America and this country will be far more competitive amongst other countries around the world.

Dean said that soccer has the opportunity to crack the top 5 of major sports in the USA. Look at the rise in value of MLS franchises across the country. They’ve risen to almost $100 million. At some point, soccer could surpass the NHL.
