Tiago, Soccer is indeed perceived as an "elite" sport in America. That is the main reason upper-middle class stay home mothers are often referred to as "soccer moms". You see, most of the other sports (basketball, footbal, baseball, etc) are perceived as being 'common' among the masses by these people - thus not elite. Nonetheless, soccer being more of a "European kind of sport", has a special kind of appeal to them (the well-to-do crowd) as it apparently makes them feel like they practice an elite, finnese sport.
Now, you may ask: why did I say "european kind of sport"? Well, you see, Tiago, many people belonging to the upper classes of America are very Europhilic.
