Football is one of the most exciting sports worldwide. With fans worldwide, football clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Arsenal enjoy international support from fans of all ages and backgrounds.

However, football teams and their history may seem gibberish to someone new to the football world and is willing to gain more insight into it.

If you’re struggling to pick a team to support this season, here are a few factors you should consider.

Location

If you’re a practical person who wants to go beyond the idea of showing support to a football club through a television screen, you must take location into account when picking your favourite team. Does the team represent your city, country, continent, or heritage? Do these teams often play home games or at stadiums near your home?

The answer to these questions will allow you to be an active supporter with reduced travel costs and more opportunities to see your favourite players outperform everyone on the field.

Popularity and Historical Wins

One of the best ways for a football newbie to choose a team to support is by conducting extensive research. Everyone inevitably wants to be on the winning team’s side. Therefore, you should start by researching the team’s overall popularity in their hometown and worldwide, and looking up their previously historical successes.

It’s critical to remember that teams with a history of consecutive wins have more chances of winning again to carry on their victorious legacy. The internet is an excellent place to research with many journals, sites, and sporting publications by reliable reporters and authors.

Another way to investigate a team’s popularity is by inquiring your friends and acquaintances about who they support during football matches. Knowing which team is the most popular in your social circle will help you determine a team’s strengths and weaknesses more efficiently.

Play style

An essential factor to consider when picking a football team to support is its play style. The play style refers to the strategies and techniques a team employs to defeat its opponents. These also include the team’s values, missions, and beliefs.

An excellent way to judge a team’s play style is by watching some of its matches and highlights from their information pages and websites. You can also dig deeper by researching the player line-ups in each team.
