    There's an oft made statement that the United States has more registered spccer players than any country in the world or something like that.

    Two questions:

    1. What are the numbers for number of soccer players in this country that this statement is based upon?

    2. What is the source this statement comes from?

    I'm wondering if there are more soccer players in the USA than there are people in Holland.

    those numbers come from the USSF.

    Might want to check with them. There are 15 million people in Holland, iirc.

    I want to say its around 20 million, but I'm far to lazy to look it up.
