The 10 good reasons to start playing football
With more than 270 million players all over the world (source FIFA) and nearly 2.2 million players in France alone, football is undoubtedly the most played sport in the world. Are you still not a follower? Doinsport has given you 10 good reasons to start playing football.
1. FOOTBALL CAN BE PRACTICE ANYWHERE
The great thing about football is that you can play anytime and anywhere. Far from the biggest football stadiums, this sport has seen its practice democratize in the most unusual places:
in the streets,
in the mythical favelas of Rio,
on the beach
on the roofs of buildings
Anyway, FOOT IS EVERYWHERE
2. FOOTBALL IS A SPORT OPEN TO ALL
If there is one sport that brings it together, it is football. This popular sport is for everyone, no matter if you live in a big city or a small village, in a rich or underprivileged neighborhood, no matter your gender, your age or your socio-professional category, love football is stronger than anything, and that’s what we love about football. Recently even the girls are starting to do it, so why not you?
3. FOOTBALL IS A SUPER COOL SPORT
The sport that brings people together the most is football! You do not practice this sport but yet you vibrated during the World Cup in Russia. You are not a fan but admit it is cool to watch a game with your friends. Whether you are with friends, with office colleagues, or with your team, getting together to play or just to watch a match is a moment of conviviality and sharing. It’s one of the few sports in the world that provides that excitement and that’s really FUN.
4. FOOTBALL IS AN EASY SPORT TO PLAY
Certain sports, such as tennis, require real technique and perfect knowledge of its rules (which are not always obvious). As for football, it has a very simple rule: score in the opposing camp’s goal, the one who scores the most goals to win. If that’s not easy!
5. FOOTBALL IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
We cannot repeat it enough that physical activity is good for you. Football, like all sports, also has its benefits. In fact, running for 90 minutes allows you to build endurance and therefore work on your cardio. Great, you’re less likely to die of cardiovascular disease. Football we love!
6. FOOTBALL IS A COLLECTIVE AFFAIR
Playing soccer is not working alone, on the contrary. The collective is the basis of a successful match. Indeed, a winning team is a team that communicates on the pitch, that knows how to play together, that is united but above all that respects its partners. Because as the saying goes “Alone we go fast, together we go further”.
7. FOOTBALL OFTEN OFFERS YOU A BEAUTIFUL SHOW
Admit that during major competitions or during “Classico”, you vibrate and shiver to the rhythm of the stopwatch. When you watch matches you don’t take your eyes off the ball, and when it hits the crossbar your heart leaps. And when your team scores, you love everyone. Don’t worry, you are completely normal! Football provides sensations that only he knows the secret.
8. WITH FOOT NOTHING IS ACQUIRED
Mbappé and his PSG teammates can testify, in football nothing is ever acquired. Everything can change at the last minute. How many teams were leading until the opposing team came back to score within minutes. It’s unfair, but unfortunately life is unfair.
9. FOOTBALL, A SPORT WITH VALUES
What we love most about football are the values that bring us together.
- the sharing
- the discipline
- surpassing oneself
- self control
- the respect of others
- but above all passion
