If you read this blog you are probably like most North American soccer fans and get the majority of your footie fix online. You get news from DuNord, stories from Soccernet, tickets from Ticketbastard, watch videos on Youtube and get the spurious rumors from MLS Underground (the Perez Hilton of American soccer).
Apparently you buy your movies online as well. A footnote from Jack Bell in the NY Times yesterday mentioned that “Goal! The Dream Begins,” the first part of the soccer movie trilogy, was the No. 5 film downloaded on iTunes after being available for less than a week. Very impressive indeed for a movie that only had a US box office gross of $4,280,577.
Let's hope that the sales will keep coming, and that it will have an influence on whether the sequel (already showing in the U.K.) gets a domestic release.
