Seattle, St. Louis and L.A. would be the frontrunners, IMO.

I can't speak for St. Louis. But as a Los Angeles native I can tell you the game is VERY big here. It has really set into this area in a way I cannot describe. Heck, I grew up playing basketball and (American) football and hated soccer. Now I have been converted! I love the game and can't wait for my son to get a little bigger so I can get him playing.

I honestly think the NFL screwed up when they left Los Angeles. Soccer has stepped into that void and is flourishing.

plus we have tons and tons of amateur, teen and kiddie leagues. and we have hispanics, arabs, africans. they love FUTBOL!

Don't quote me here, but I remember reading somewhere that the Dallas area has one of the largest youth soccer programs around.

On the women's side I think a strong case could be made for Chapel Hill, NC being the capital....
