Tell Us Your Stories of How You Converted Your Friends to Become Soccer Fans

soccer fans usa england Tell Us Your Stories of How You Converted Your Friends to Become Soccer Fans

Have you ever converted a soccer hater to a soccer lover? Or how about converting a disinterested sports fan into a soccer nut? If you have, share your story in the comments section below.

It took me 10 years but I’ve turned my brother-in-law from a person who always moaned about soccer, whenever the topic came up, into someone who doesn’t follow the sport, but has grown a greater appreciation of it. He’s watched a few games and has taken an interest in the sport (thanks to his daughter who plays on a travel team).

I’m sure I’ve influenced a few people to becoming mad soccer fans through this blog, but I have a feeling that many of you have much better stories of converting unsuspecting sports fans into soccer die-hards. Share your stories below of who you converted, how you did it and how many people you think you’ve converted.
