, 4% of the worlds population actively play soccer (304 million people in 2018). The numbers of not registered players are much higher. In countries like Germany around 20% of the population plays soccer.
The tremendous impact of Fans
While lots of media attention is being paid to professional soccer games all over the world, amateur sports are left out of the focus. It is the amateur players and the fan in general however that make this sport such as an important phenomenon. The fans of their clubs live soccer like no-one else and support their team with all they have. They are the ones that really live the sports of soccer.
Now, this is where the number 12 comes in. In soccer the number twelve has a representative value. It is said that home teams that are backed with a full stadium of their most passionate fans imaginably play with 12 players because the support from the fans has the same impact as if the team would be playing with 12 instead of 11 players. A good example are the world cups that are played every four years. Due to the support of their fans, nations like South Corea or Russia were able to to reach the semi finals (South Corea) or win against teams like Spain (Russia), something nearly impossible under normal circumstances.
The Fan is the number 12
The most passionate fans are people that play soccer in their spare time wherever possible: In the street, on public playgrounds, at the beach or at sport centers. Any possibility is used to play the sport we love and that integrates people like nothing else. It is exactly the amateur player, the number 12, who is the focus of the social sports community of Sport12.
