The Casual Sports Fan's Guide to Soccer


Periodically on our blog, we add a post that is designed for casual sports fans who want to know about how an aspect of world -- and especially British -- soccer works. The idea for this series came about during the 2016 Copa America Centenario. It was clear that this tournament was important, but it seemed like a lot of American sports fans didn't know why. It wasn't the World Cup, so why should we care?

Out of that came a desire to make sure that any sports fans --especially American ones still showing up at soccer's door for the first time -- who wanted to know something about soccer could find out about it here. By the end, this will be a full guide to soccer for all casual sports (and soccer) fans.

As we continue to add new posts to our blog, we will also list them here. That way, if you want to read the series in order and in its entirety, you can do so here.
