Some approximated statistics about what the word “football” means to people around the world.
|Meaning||People who hold it|
|Aussie Rules Football**||23,000,000|
These numbers might not mean much to most people, so I’ve tried to visualise them below.
*) This counts American Football and Canadian Football as one sport, even though they are technically different.
**) In Australia “football” might also refer to “Rugby League”, “Rugby Union” or “Association Football”, depending on context.
***) In Ireland “football” is also used for both Association Football and Rugby Union.
