Spanish Speakers in the U.S. are following the World Cup

June 17, 2010 1 Comment »

The is the No. 1 sporting event in the world, being even more popular and attracting more fans than the Super Bowl. Having begun just a week ago, the games will be among the top subjects of conversation throughout Spanish-speakers in the U.S (and the world) up to the finals on July 11. Soccer is the most popular sport in Latin America: so it’s no suprise to see six Spanish-speaking countries — Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay and Uruguay — apart from their mother country Spain, among the 32 that have qualified for the final tournament. This fact makes Spanish the most common language represented by the tournament participants.

Fanáticos — From AOL Latino.

Torneo Mundial de Fútbol 2010 — From the Spanish-language Terra portal.

UnivisionFutbol.com — Soccer from the leading U.S. Spanish-language cable network.
