Soccer, or commonly referred to as football in many countries, is one the most-played sports in the entire world.  If you are interested in watching the sport, be sure to tune in to these soccer leagues:


English Premier League

The Premier League is the top level of the football league system in England, and it has some of the most famous soccer clubs in the world, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, and more.  The matches have high stakes and the stadiums are always filled with some of the best sports fans.  Viewers can hear the buzz of the cheering crowd as they watch Premier League games through the television or other digital media.

Spanish La Liga

The top Spanish football league is home to one of the fiercest sports rivalries.  Matches between La Liga powerhouses Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are among the most viewed sporting events, and it even has its own name – “El Clasico.”  If only more La Liga clubs were competitive, the league would have a bigger following.

German Bundesliga

Bundesliga is younger than the more established leagues in other countries, having been formed in 1963, but it already has a solid fan base.  The league is very fan-orientated since it is not in the clubs’ culture to raise ticket prices.  The number of season tickets is also limited adding to the excitement.  An average of more than 40,000 spectators go to the games, making it the soccer league with the highest average attendance.
