Well there's your problem.

Instead of promoting tnagential things like the fans or the one celeb player you have, try promoting the sport itself...the exciting play, or the dramatic scoring, or the amazing feats of physical strength involved. Oh, right...soccer. Never mind.

We get a small MLS crowd in our bar. And by small, I mean like 4 people, but they are intense. They dress up, yell at the screen when nothing is happening, make a big deal out of rivalries nobody else seems to care about, and get offended when nobody takes their sport seriously.

Basically they're the Juggalos of the sports world.
