    Default Soccer's 1st World popularity

    I understand why soccer is so popular in the 3rd World, due to lack of resources for more complicated games. But why does its popularity persist in the 1st World? I assume it started because they brought the game back from their colonial possessions.

    Not quite sure. It's had an interesting history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Associ...otball#History
