Soccer – The Universal Game – Strength Magazine – April 1930

From the April 1930 issue of Strength Magazine, writer Casper H. Nannes describes the growing popularity of soccer, aka football, all over the world.

“This centuries old game of the British Isles has attained greater general popularity than any other sport; it is played under like regulations everywhere.”

“Of all the sports we play, soccer can put forth its claim as being the most universal.”
