It's because soccer is something that's "worth checking out" in this country. It's not engrained in the upbringing of American's like Gridiron Football in the south, or like Baseball once was. If you want that kind of rabid passion in the states you need to build clubs from the community level upwards. It'll also help to have religious and political conflicts manifest themselves into club matches as well. Give supporters a reason other than footy to hate each other. Rangers v Celtic for example.
