Regions like the Middle East, the entire continent of Africa, much of Asia. In pretty much every developing and third world country soccer is still in its infant stages. Basketball won't even begin to close the gap any generation soon.
I'd love to see the source of the "soccer is growing at an exponential rate" statement.
No source needed man. It's just a fact.
Is soccer not growing in at a rapid pace in the states? Are domestic leagues not growing outside of Europe and the Americas?
There are people in developing countries who play everyday who've never seen a match on TV, or don't have a domestic league to speak of.
A lot of that will have changed 50 years from now.
