Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Spalding's Official "Soccer" Football Guide, 1916-17

Though the guide is a little late in making its appearance this season, the reason therefor is a perfectly legitimate one. It was held back primarily that its readers might find out all about the trip of America's first inter national team, the one which covered itself with glory in Scandinavia in the late summer. The Editor of the guide was honored by being placed in charge of the trip by the National and International Games Committee of the United States Football Association, under the auspices of which, as a matter of course and of football law, the trip was arranged. The rush of matters which piled up during the absence of the Editor naturally brought about the delay in the appearance of this volume.

Late as it is, however, it is not too late for the Editor to congratulate association football enthusiasts the country over on the wonderful progress the sport is making. It is beyond question the' fastest growing sport in the country, its adoption in the public schools, in the United States Army and on the municipal recreation grounds all over the United States being a great tribute to its worth both as an athletic exercise and as a spectacle.

In this latter aspect it stands close to the top of the list of athletic games. It is a game easy to understand, easy for the novice to play, and beautiful when developed to the limit of its possibilities by the expert, There is not an athletic director in any educational institution in the country who is not ready to commend it, and it is a game which never fails to catch and hold the interest of the casual Spectator without a partisan interest in the for tunes of one or the other of two contending teams, and this is the highest tribute that can be paid to any game from the spectacular point of view.

The Editor also wishes to take this occasion to thank the United States Football Association for the wonderful work it has done to foster interest in the sport and to bring its organization and government to a proper basis.
