In this paper I’m going to write about soccer culture. What is it that makes this culture distinctive or unique from other cultures? How do members of other cultures view this culture? Are they proud of it? Understand it? Misunderstand it? Disapprove of it?
Soccer culture refers to the cultural aspects surrounding the game of association soccer. In many countries, soccer has ingrained itselfinto the national culture, and parts of life may revolve around it. Many countries have daily soccer newspapers, as well as soccer magazines. Soccer players especially in the top levels of the game have become role models for people. The game has become glamourized, with many children practicing the game and aspiring to the wealth shown off by the top soccer players. Soccer’s power runs deeper thanthe ninety minutes played on the pitch, it has held the power to unify nations, it has played out wars and it has brought people together from around the world.

What makes this culture distinctive or unique from other cultures? From my perspective, it is the passion. Every time you watch or play a soccer match there is a feeling which can’t be compared to anything. There is nothing better.

This also involves programs to reduce racism in the game.
