Toronto FC
FC Dallas
Seattle Sounders FC

In America you call it soccer so why do they have FC in their names?

What? I'm being genuinely serious. And why does it matter what you call it. I call it both depending on who i'm speaking to.

These clubs are American and they call it soccer. So shouldn't these teams theoretically be called SC (soccer Club) or something?

Not all Americans call it soccer. I am pretty sure my group of friends call it Football and the dudes who formed the Franchise dont call it soccer either because they called them Football Club.

I Mean NO disrespect to die hard soccer fans.

But really it's just some sort of wierd euro-envy or copy cattishness.

MLS is like "MUST GET HARDCORE SOCCER FANS-----SOME HARD CORE SOCCER FANS DON'T LIKE WORD "SOCCER" SO MUST USE FOOTBALL".

That's basically it.
