Why is "are" used for the clubs and not "is" for singular? Ex. Juventus ARE very good, Real madrid ARE nice
Why can't say "is" because that is singular?

In British English, the plural form(are) is used for a club because the club is made up of individuals, but in American English, the form used is based on the clubs name: ex. "the Yankees are good", "The patriots are annoying", "the cubs were world series winners in 2016", but "Real Madrid is Nice"(sorry, there aren't a lot of singular team names).
