There are sports that only the rich can play, like golf and tennis, and others that the poor are obsessed about, and mainly that is football (soccer). If football wasn't a sport for the poor, it would never be popular in the world, simply because most of the world is poor.
That's why we find Egyptians calling football El Koora Sharab (Football is Socks) because as kids they were too poor to buy a football so they'd make a small football out of torn socks and start playing with it. That's how the unofrunate kids in third world countries wake up to play football and sleep on the rhythms of its music, and from there we got the most talented players in the world including Pele and Maradona.
The majority of third world countries including Jordan never qualified to the World Cup and it doesn't like they will make it any time soon, but its magic keeps people attracted to it and every 4 years the whole world stands still in front of their screens watching the games to the last second.
As life is becoming more sophisticated and people are becoming more selfish, some money-thirsty selfish bastards like the ART officials have adopted a policy that money and only money is what they care for all and they would never compromise to allow local TV stations to broadcast the matches, despite that more than half Arabs cannot afford to pay a quarter of the expenses that ART is suggesting, unlike the situation in the US where the majority of people can afford to get a cable and watch the major American football and NBA matches.
For more than ten years ART has been preventing Arabs from watching important matches and I'm afraid that football is becoming a sport for the rich, being watched by the rich and played by the rich and poor people should find another sport to cheer for, maybe sba3 7jaar seems like a good option.
