Two sports connected by the same name, but completely different. It’s Football vs American Football.

One belongs to the USA, the other belongs to the World. Let’s compare both legendary games, examine the facts and see which is best!

Fact 1 - Fans
To start us off, who has more fans? Football has an estimated 3,5 billion fans. That’s roughly 1 in 2 people on this planet.

Fact 2 - Average Attendance
NFL boasts a bigger average attendance of over 68,000 fans per game though. However, Fans of Fußball club Borrusia Dortmund have the highest game attendance with over 80,354 per game.

Fact 3 - Biggest Stadium
The Biggest stadium award goes to fútbol! Barcelona can seat the population of Liechtenstein TWICE!

Fact 4 - Speed of a Ball
If you want speed, kick it don’t throw it. What flies at 211 kmh? A football kicked by Ronny Heberson back in 2006. Rumour has it it was last seen orbiting Mars.

Fact 5 - Throwing
American Football wins this time with a record throw of 76 metre.

Fact 6 - Running Speed

Fact 7 - How far a Player Runs
Footballers run more than six times the distance an NFL player does in one game too.

Fact 8 - Ball in Play
In American football, the ball is in play only 18,3% of the time. Fans can spend the other 82,7% of the time. In Football, most of the time is spent watching... football.

Fact 9 - Average Retirement Age

Fact 10 - Average Career Length
Their average career length is almost 5 years longer too.

Fact 11 - Average yearly salary
An average Premier League player earns enough in one year to fly the entire population of San Marino to a nearby European city... Or they can have an Ipod shuffle each.

Fact 12 - Highest Paid Players
Cristiano Ronaldo earns more than any footballer. He can fly the whole population of San Marino to New York… or he can buy them all a cheap car each.. it’s their choice.

So there you have it, the facts, stats and the records.
