Snoop Dog is a game-changer type of personality that Soccer needs in America.   Snoop Dog is all over the sports market this week promoting the FIFA Soccer 13.  He is working it hard for the makers of the video game, EA Sports and his enthusiasm really comes out in a positive way.

His hashtag on Twitter, #SnoopsFIFA13, was trending big all day on Tuesday.  He was in and out of pretty much every ESPN television and radio studio.

He found his love for the sport several years ago when he was traveling overseas for concerts he was giving.  He said the first player to get his attention was Ronaldo.

He relayed stories of watching Brazilian Ronaldo and how it got him really into the sport.  He says in the beginning he thought Soccer was boring, but he admitted that he didn’t understand it.  Now, he fully supports the ‘beautiful game.’

MLS should chase Snoop down and get him to promote their league.  Definitely, a section of the U.S. population needed to push the sport mainstream is inner-city young people and Snoop Dog brings that audience and much more.

Snoop Dog also proves that playing the video game does bring new fans to the sport.  His story of coming to respect and love Soccer is partly based on the video game.
