girls soccer

Newly released research shows that participation and fandom in soccer has passed baseball among America’s teens ages 14-17. The study reveals that 40% of teens surveyed consider themselves fans of soccer while only 30% of those teens say the same about baseball.

The Magid Sports Ecosystem study reveals that the rise in soccer’s appeal to America’s youth is supported two increasingly important demographics in the sports landscape.  54% of 14-17 year old Hispanic sports fans are fans of soccer and 49% of female teens call themselves fans of the sport.  In the case of girls, the difference between soccer and baseball is dramatic 49% to 22%.

The research, conducted online during the last week of April with 3,000 U.S. sports fans ages 14-64, also reveals an important demarcation in the participation levels in each sport.  Americans under the age of 25 are more likely to have played or coached soccer.  26% of 14-24 years olds have participated in soccer while only 22% have participated in baseball. 

Is this true for you? Are you asoccer fan? baseball fan? Both? Neither?
