“Football (Soccer) is the world’s most popular and watched sport, with over 3 billion people watching the final of the World Cup in Qatar alone, where Argentina was crowned champion. Argentines have remained immersed in soccer fandom from childhood, from local clubs to professional teams. Much like all aspects of Argentine culture and society, soccer became infiltrated by ideas of populism and collectivism.” (06/03/24)
