Fútbol or soccer--a true world sport--is finally taking root on Long Island.
Not only is it the nost popular girls sport in suburbia, but Latino immigrants have brought the spirited international version to fields across Long Island.
Leagues have formed sponsoring weekend competitions for men, women and children from Corona to Montauk.
The largest league serving Nassau and Suffolk, Long Island Hispanic Soccer Federation, fields 64 mens teams (18 yrs+) and 8 teams for young women ages 15-21. The season runs April through November with games held Sundays at various venues throughout the two counties.
