4. International Stars on U.S. Soil

At least one-third of this year’s players are contracted to European club teams. Most notably from the English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, France’s Ligue 1, and Italy’s Serie A among others. It’s another example of why Europe is a top continent for the sport. More importantly, we get to see the sports best in action. With Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria, Colombia’s James Rodriguez, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez, and Brazil’s Hulk are among the many global stars that American fans will get to see first hand.
