    It's not very well documented but the Dela Cruz line originated in Portoviejo, Ecuador.

    I've got one: we're constantly seeing articles that say Association Football (or sawker if you must ) has the highest participation levels of any sport amongst American children, so why does its profile lag so far behind those of baseball, gridiron, hockey & NBA?

    It would be tough really. I have got a fairly small nation in Iran though. So things are looking brighter. Also, along with US, if I can get some specific questions for Brazil as well, it would be great..

    I know popular countries but I have only just started finding.

    Try joining Hattrick - you'll find football fans from all over the world there. Plus it's a fun game to play.

    That's a similar story with Australia really. Junior football is the most popular sport by a BIG margin.

    If it is the most popular sport (which I wasn't aware of, but I'll take your interstate word for it), then it's definitely not by a BIG margin. I know it may be different from state to state, but in Victoria, (as you would expect) AFL dominates, and then there's a big gap to rugby, soccer, etc.

    Soccer isn't "huge", but it's definitely growing in popularity at an exponential rate.

    In terms of junior participation it is the biggest across all the states. I think your thinking more in terms of how many people go through the gates and watch on TV for the senior professional aspect of the sport. But in terms of how many juniors play the sport, its got a pretty significant gap and all the other team sports in Australia.

    Yeah like Tharmi said, I was just talking about juniors playing the game. I'd imagine football would be bigger than AFL even in Victoria in the earlier years. Although there is Auskick I spose.
