9. As a viewer sport, it's not that popular

but as a participant sport down on the general population level, it's pretty popular - i.e., see the (somewhat tired) term "Soccer Mom" - and most significantly since the 1990s. Many schools and camps and even daycares start the kids as toddlers learning how to kick the ball into a net, to the point where soccer has been supplanting little league (although probably not basketball - at least in the urban areas).
