FIFA World Cup 2014 Unites All Languages

Sports have been an integral part of cultures from all around the world for centuries. Although athletic competitions vary from country to country, there is one sport that can be talked about worldwide: soccer. With World Cup 2014, nations – regardless of culture, race, or location –will all be speaking one language: soccer.

The Unity of Soccer

Across the world, different countries have their own events that may be more popular than soccer. The United States prides itself on baseball, and Canada is often known for hockey. Around the world however, there is one sport that reigns supreme over them all: soccer.

With origins dating back to medieval times, the sport of soccer had its first official rules established in 1863, making it one of the older sports still played. It brings out the competitive spirit in all countries around the world. At no time is that more apparent than during the World Cup.

FIFA World Cup 2014

Regardless of what language is spoken, everyone can relate to the competition that is found in soccer. Starting June 12, 2014, the World Cup will unite millions of people from different countries and speaking different languages to watch these competitions. This worldly reach is exemplified in the first matchup to take place between Brazil and Croatia, one country in South America and the other in Europe. As they face off, the language barrier will be lifted, for they will be speaking a common language: soccer.

This diversity of language and culture will remain all the way through the month of June right through July 13th, when the World Cup finals will take place. Throughout this competition, individuals from around the world will watch and cheer for their teams to win. The fervor generated by soccer simply cannot be matched.

Soccer – The Language of the Month

No matter which team you are rooting for, the world cup is a prominent world event, with most people agreeing that it matters even more than the Olympics. Even in countries where soccer is not normally very popular, the World Cup attracts viewers. In its truest sense, the FIFA World Cup provides people worldwide with the opportunity to communicate in a common language.

Regardless of your native tongue, certain things just excel during this month-long sporting event. Players score goals, they get red cards, yellow cards and shoot penalty shots. These actions need no translation; everyone speaks the same language during the World Cup.

Be ready to sit back, grab a beer and watch the most exciting sporting event of the year. Even if you’re in a foreign country, don’t speak the language or have no knowledge of its culture, fear not: everyone speaks soccer.
