Information on Mexican Soccer

Soccer is the most popular sport in Mexico and an important part of traditional Mexican culture.

During the major soccer match the entire Mexico is paralyzed. This is especially the case when the Mexican national soccer team is playing an important game.

As one Mexican politician said Our country is most united when Mexican national team is playing against some other national soccer team. This is why whenever we face the danger of being divided among ourselves and thus expose ourselves to our enemies we should organize an international soccer match.

The passion of Mexican men is most obvious when they cheer for their favorite Mexican soccer team, or the Mexican national team. The atmosphere on the soccer stadiums can be so intense that one would think that the war is about to broke out.

Sometimes the soccer stadiums in Mexico are indeed the place of the battlefield where the fans of the opposite soccer teams engage in the vigorous fights. Unfortunately the violence is a part of many sports around the world and Mexican ardent soccer fans are no exception to this rule.

For Mexican men the most important things in their lives are: Family, women, religion and soccer. In other words soccer is very important social institution in Mexico and an inseparable part of everyday life in Mexico.

A good example of the soccer popularity in Mexico is the fact that some of the most popular Mexican celebrities are soccer players.

This is why many Mexican boys and teenagers dream of becoming famous soccer players that would defend the national flag and honor on the international tournaments such as the World Cup.

As you can see soccer in Mexico is much more than a sport. In fact, it is more a phenomenon than a sport, and a force that can unite or divide the Mexican people more than anything else.
