FIFA World Cup organizers are seeking to create an all-inclusive soccer experience for fans around the world as they prepare for the next World Cup.
In an effort to attract soccer fans, the tournament organizers are working to expand the popularity of the sport in North America.
The tournament organizers hope that the soccer-specific features of the tournament, including the fact that it will take place in the U.S., will draw more fans to the games, said John H. Haskins, the federation’s executive director.
The U.K. Premier League has also been a major draw in the past few years and the league is planning to add more stadiums this summer.
“We’ve had a very good start,” Haskers said.
“We think it’s a great game and it’s an important part of the FIFA World cup calendar.”
In its first year, the United States hosted the World Cup in 2013.
The U.N. estimates that nearly 5 million Americans have participated in soccer and the U-20 World Cup is expected to draw in nearly half that number.
“It’s great to see soccer growing and the game is growing in popularity in the United Kingdom,” Harkins said.
In England, the soccer tournament will feature more than 2,000 matches with 14 matches played on Friday nights.
The England team will face Germany in a friendly on Wednesday.
Haskins said the event is aimed at attracting a wider audience than the U20 World cup, which will be played in 2019 in Russia.
“This is not a World Cup that we’re building for just the U19 teams.
It’s a World cup for everyone,” Hinkins said, referring to the players.
Hinkins is also looking at how the tournament could affect the soccer world.
“The fact that the players are all U.F.L. players is a big thing,” he said.
“If you’re a fan of the game, you want to see that there’s something for everybody.
I’m not saying that this is the right way to go.
But if you are, then we’re trying to get you excited about it.”
