TerpSoccerFan : You live in the US and it's natural that you hear more about the EPL. There are parts of the world like Latin America where people are oblivious to English football. They watch La Liga and Serie A because that's where all the latin players play. La Liga and Serie A are the dominant leagues throughout the Mediterranean, North Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East... The Bundesliga is huge in central and eastern Europe. I'm from Romania and my country is the same. Most Romanians watch La Liga and Serie A because that's where all the big Romanian stars have played over the years. In Hungary where I've spent time everyone watches Bundesliga because that's where Hungarians play. Each of the big 5 Euro leagues has its own particular spheres of influence, and North America is predominantly EPL. The reason that EPL seems to be growing faster than the others is because they've successfully extended their brand to places like Asia, Australia and Africa. The other 4 leagues have fallen behind in these "new" soccer markets, but there's signs that they are moving to catch up.
