The biggest and best sport in my opinion is the real football, also known as soccer on this side of the Atlantic. Football is played the world over and draws in the largest audiences. And this year, Canada is hosting the Women’s World Cup.
Growing up watching and playing football, I’m happy to see my country not only hosting it but our national team doing well. Fingers crossed our team wins the title, but nonetheless its great to see how much women’s football has grown.
Years past, it was near to impossible to find a game on TV. Now women’s soccer is televised across North America with this year’s World Cup drawing larger stadium attendance. Also in 2016, EA Sports will include 12 women’s team including Canada and the US’ national teams in their best selling video game.
