Referred to as soccer in the US and Canada, the game football, fứtbol (Spanish), is without any iota of doubt, the world’s most revered, celebrated game. It would also generate very little adverse reaction, if rated as the most interesting game in the history of humanity.
Modern football since its advent in the 19th Century has indeed grown very rapidly. In fact, the Encarta Encyclopedia reports that “Soccer is the world’s most popular sport, played by people of all ages in about 200 countries. The sport has millions of fans throughout the world.” And no doubt, logos have also played part in making the game of soccer what it is today.
With the advent of highly celebrated football clubs such as Manchester United FC, Chelsea FC, and Barcelona FC, and the upsurge of affection in several hearts across the globe for them, especially in modern times when matches can be viewed almost everywhere, even on mobile phones, football has been catapulted to a much higher pedestal.
Now, in several countries, even beyond their home countries, the flags and logos of these giant clubs are being adulated. They have found expression on wrist bands; attached to car plate numbers, and used as notebook cover designs, and more. Moreover, epoch-making matches have been greeted with decoration of sections of streets with club logos and flags by avid fans.
