attacking team has four times to find a way to get the ball going towards the
part of the other team that gets 10 yards (each yard is 0.91 meters long). If
after four times of playing without reaching 10 yards, it is imperative to give
the ball back to the other team.
your team will have to replace all attacking players with 11 defensive players
while the other team does the opposite.
If the team is able to reach 10 yards once in their four turns of attacking, they will get four more turns. As such, if the attacking team sends the ball to the opponent’s bottom line, it gets 6 points – called a “Touch down“. After each score, 7 points (Touch down) and 3 points (Field goal), the team must return the ball to the other team by kicking it from the middle of the field towards the other team.

President, Bill Beaumont, went to France to meet with officials of the
federation and the government. “We have reviewed all of our terms,”
said World American football executive director.

The 24-year-old Chris Shea has been fond of Man City since
he was a child, but he can only watch stars through television. ICC gives him
the opportunity to watch a real match, with stars like Riyad Mahrez or Bernado
Silva. So, he and his girlfriend Jessica ride from Durango to Miami to be on
the stands, witnessing Pep Guardiola’s army defeat Bayern Munich.
It is a journey of about 5,000 km, equal to from London to
… Pakistan, lasting 35 hours in a car with only 1,500 USD in the bag.
However, as Shea said, it is more than a dream to see Man City players playing
with flesh and bones.

and works on Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Claiming to be an avid fan of Man City,
Russell flew 800 km to Miami. He said that “it cost $ 2,000 for the
plan” and “could not sleep on the eve of the match”. Russell
admitted that he “could die of happiness with being on the Hard Rock
There seems to have been a major change in American soil.
From a strange country with football, the sport is called “soccer”
because “football” has been used for rugby, they began to be
infatuated with a game of 22 players on green grass. Americans now no longer
wonder why the players do not wear helmets (like rugby) or for whatever reason
cannot stand under the opponent’s defense. ICC brings them closer to the big
clubs in Europe and many people like Shea or Russell spend big sums to not miss
the top performances.
From a place that is quite indifferent to football, in
recent years Americans are gradually giving much love to the sport which is not
the number one in the country of flowers. The major contribution to this change
is the International Champions Cup friendly tournament that brings together
many stars and brings fabulous parties to American NHM.
According to a survey published by Gallup, 7% of Americans
love football, making it the fourth most popular sport in the country, after
rugby (37%), basketball (11%) and baseball (9%). The fourth-ranked hockey
player has now slipped to fifth, with 4%.
7% may be a small number if placed next to other countries,
but it represents a boom in America. Compared to the same poll 4 years ago, the
top 3 sports decreased interest rates, only football increased by 3%. Football
also receives special attention from young people. Among those aged 18 to 34,
11% said they loved football, equal to basketball and higher than baseball.
It may be a coincidence, but undeniably the appearance of
ICC since 2013 has helped to change the perception and pull Americans closer to
the king sport. The match between M.U and Liverpool in Michigan recently
attracted 101.254 spectators. However, it has not yet reached a record of
109,318 spectators in the 2014 M.U and Real competition in Michigan.
Now, ICC is almost an indispensable dish for Americans every
Football can replace baseball
In the past, horse racing, boxing and baseball were the
three favorite American sports. Many years ago these were rugby, basketball and
baseball. According to an analysis on Forbes in early 2018, rapid growth will
make football into the Top 3 in the future, replacing baseball.
