Good afternoon, Juliet. Reporter: Good afternoon, Daniel. Yes, for how many years have we been hearing football soccer is popular in the U.S., at last?

It happened when our United States Women’s team won the world championship in 1999.

It happened when David Beckham came to play in major league soccer. It even happened when the United States got out of its group phase in the last world championship in 2010, but this time fees a little different. Matches. Reporter: Football has always been the sport for the rest of the countries.

American Football is our game, baseball is our pastime. Can Clint Dempsey do it?

Yes he can! Reporter: Until now he has done so. There are so many U.S. Americans here in Rio and, you know, we debate and feel pride, whenever we see each other.

Reporter: Aside from Brazilians, Americans bought more ticks to this world championship than any other nation. A whopping 196,000 fans like Mathew from New York who spent 10 thousand to be here.

When they scored that last goal I truly almost passed out. Reporter: But it isn’t just die-hards in Brazil, from Northern California to Florida, Americans are embracing football soccer like never before in 1 group of fans is right in the middle of the uprising, the U.S. American outlaws. Membership for this comb up has risen steeply.

The thirty and forty chapters that we had in 2010 are now 1140 chapters. Reporter: And the fan base is developing faster than any other sport and many U.S. Americans confirm they are watching football soccer at the same rate as professional basketball. All: I believe that we’ll win.
