Soccer Clubs


There are leagues for professional soccer all over the world in dozens of different countries, but any one league has to be limited to only one country under FIFA rules.  The exception to this is in North America, where the same Major League Soccer is from both the United States and Canada.  This differs significantly from other sports.  It’s also confusing to think of how there can be a soccer champion team when all of the leagues are separated by country.  Under FIFA, which controls professional soccer leagues all around the world, there are six different regional confederations, each of whom have a tournament to determine the regional champion.  FIFA also stages a Club World Cup in order to determine the champion out of the six confederations.
