a sport that is played in 50 nations spread in six continents according to the IFAF. The IFAF or International Federation of American Football governs the sport. This sport is soon to be the savior of the olympics in the near future, this is one sport that is growing rapidly worldwide, it might be within the 20 yr range. most likely the sport if gridiron football could debut in 2024 as a summer olympic sport. I say it desreves to be an olympic game because it is a minority sport and it has true competition. There's a lot of effort, physically, and mentally!!
its not footy. american football is played in other countries like the Czech Rep, UK, Japan, Uruguay(Uruguay Football League),Canada, Netherlands, Finland.etc!
