Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I always wondered about the difference in team names in Europe and team names in North America. Teams over here are almost always 'the (Location) (Nickname)' while a lot of teams over in Europe are usually just '(Location) F.C.' or some other variation of that. A lot of European teams do have nicknames, but many of them aren't included in the actual team's name like they are over here. Does anyone have any idea how that came about? Is it just a difference in cultures?
