Success of European Championship could lead to more global soccer tournament; may include N. America, S. America, Asia, Africa, Australia and held every four years

London--International Soccer officials are waiting to gauge the success of Euro2012, the European Championship held every x number of years, in order to determine whether a more global tournament should be organized. "Soccer is becoming more and more popular worldwide," said Jean Benivedi, a public relations director at the Soccer Guys, a French-based nonprofit that promotes the game internationally. "Yes, even more popular than American football. And, I think the world is ready for a tournament that determines the best soccer nation on the planet. It could be held, like, every four years or so. I'm serious." If Euro2012 is deemed a success, soccer matches could be televised in the near future.
