Soccer is a popular game worldwide. For many reasons i believe soccer is the appropriate game if CSC decided to add one more sport. There are many reasons that can support my answer, the reasons are as follow.

 

1- Popularity

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world in terms of player numbers. According to the 2006 FIFA Big Count, there were 265 million soccer players in the world, 270 million when referees and match officials were included.

2-Inexpensive

Soccer players don’t need to spend large amounts of money on equipment. The two most costly items are soccer cleats and a ball, and neither need be overly expensive. A jersey, shorts and shin guards are the only other requirements. Football players must buy a large number of protective items for competitive play.

3-Easy to Learn

It doesn’t take long to learn the basics of soccer. The rules are straightforward and easily defined, with only a few regulations — such as the offside rule, leaving much room for confusion. Football is a more complex sport in terms of set plays and regulations.

4-Physical Requirements

Soccer players don’t need the physical strength of football players. Athleticism and fitness are important, but you don’t need to be physically imposing to play soccer. Some of the world’s top players, such as Lionel Messi, relypurely on skill and creativity rather than strength and stature. This makes soccer a more inclusive sport than football, for men and women.

5-Injuries

Soccer players are less prone to injuries than football players, according to the 2006 High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The one-year study found that football players had the highest injury rate, with 4.36 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures. Male and female soccer players had a rate of 2.43 and 2.36, respectively.
