Many of the towns on the maps in FB have soccer/football fields. It was and is a popular sport in Europe, and its gaining in popularity here in the US. It's definitley cool to fly over and see though!

According to Int. Board, that circle is 9.15 meters in radius. Is the standard distance you have to keep away from the ball when opposite team was awarded a free kick.Direct or indirect.

I'll tell you why soccer isnt so popular in the US. It simply doesn't fit in with the moronic advertising schedule, you know were ANY programme you watch is interupted every 15 seconds by some idiotic advertising break. American football suits this format because it only has sporadic actual action, leaves plenty of room for the masses to be brainwashed into buying more Big Macs and Double "Big King" burgers. Soccer, with its 45 mins per side will NEVER become popular because those that run the TV networks won't let it (not enough advertising "opportunities". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You sure it's a soccer field? I've seen photo's of Soviet style barracks and training facilities, and their PT zones look awfully simular to that. Notice the running track around it, exactly what you see at a Red Army barrack.

These fields look like soccer stadiums (and they're meant to be soccer stadiums), but they're much smaller than the real ones: their lenght is less than 50 metres instead of 90-120 m like real soccer fields.
To see a better soccer field look at object #320 from the objects list in the FMB.

And to think that I had it wrong all this time! I thought soccer wasn't on US TV because there was no market demand for it. Silly me! Clearly, I've wanted soccer all along, and didn't even know it. Its those damned corporations oppressing me, keeping me from the TOTAL BOREDOM I so desperately desire.

Why you american friends dont see a "soccer" (ARGH!) field in the first pic is because you dont have this tradition. This is not an "official" soccer field, its just for weekend fun, not professional...

Any country around the world have soccer fields like that. Here in Brasil its more than common, and in Europe too.

Thats correct in a way, there is no market demand FACT. The reason there is no market demand is that American tv culture is led by the advertising and marketing sector, believe me if they thought they could make more money out of Soccer rather than so called American Football, you guys WOULD be playing Soccer right now. I repeat the bottom line is that US Football suits the advertising and marketing guys better because they have ample opportunity to brainwash the masses into buying more ****;due to the constant breaks in action etc. Have you EVER seen a programme on US TV that went for 45 minutes without an advertising break?? The TV companies would be frothing at the mouth if they broadcast for 5 minutes without an ad break, never mind a whole 45 minutes...lol :P
BTW I think the US football team did rather well in the last world cup did they not? (cant remember).

Actually they can and I even seen that during football (not American) games. When there's a quiet moment (injury,yellow cards,red and so on) adverts pop on the screen,of course there's no clip but only the logo and a slogan.But I bet those companies paid A LOT to do that.In football money are not made from the adverts during the halfs.In the break mostly , on the pitch and so on. Not to mention the HUGE price paid for certain players.See Zidane,Beckham,Ronaldo et co. Not like I say they worth these money.Is not even my problem.If some club decides to pay 70 millions euros for a player,then definitely is something wrong. You can buy an F-18 for this price.I agree there are sports where wages are fully justified.Take F1,Indy,NASCAR for an example.These ppl risk their lives every time they jump in the cockpit.
Football?Yes,this is really dangerous...not.
And the funny thing is that is one of the cheapest sports to play.All you need are .... err, is balls ,or a ball whatever.

Denial is a powerful thing. All the kids in my neighborhood play soccer...almost non of them play football.

It's just the market. If someone pays 70 million euros for a player is because teams think it is worth it. Same goes for salary. You may think it's stupid to pay 6 millon euros per year to a guy running behind a ball, but again, he generates a lot of money, for they clubs and for sponsors, so he deserves it. And about being motorsports being more dangerous I don't agree. It looks more dangerous but F1 these days is a joke. There has been more fatalities in football in the last 3 years(players not crowd of course) than in F1 in the last 15 years.
