After WWI, sports such as baseball, cricket, and other games became popular and the government encouraged these sports as physical education exercises. Sports emerged as a national culture, the first football and cricket clubs were formed, and coaches made up of retired players were hired. Coaches soon were available for other sports and athletic events, boxing and so on. After WWII, the amount of money in sports increased dramatically and coaches had a much better future.
