in a world where football rules all other sports, the are a few countries where other sports are still hugely popular. india, my country is the best example. hockey the national sport of india is completely ignored, football is still finding ground in india while cricket, a COLONIAL HANGOVER is like a religion to the people. is there any other country where other sports still rule?

Hi rahul.. In the Philippines, basketball, billiards, and boxing are some of the most popular sports here. In these sports, we actually excelled a lot and consistently winning. We found it very interesting and we owed a lot for those athletics who sacrificed a lot for the sake of becoming the champion in the world. Have a nice day and God speed!

In my country China, pingpong is the most popular sport that many people love to play, from young kids to people in their seventies. But I didn't start to play pingpong at an early age, but in my early twenties after I graduated from college because I didn't show much interest while I was at school, only after I graduated from college. By the way, pingpong is regarded as our national game.

In my country, we have traditiional sports here that are seemed to be ignored. We are more into western type of sports, like basketball, billiards (pool) and boxing. We can only enjoy those traditional sports on side-streets, that we sometimes rarely see. I prefer to see our own brand of sport be played, than see them completely be ignored and vanish as time goes by.

i think it would def, be cricekt. it is in our blood man. we dnt learn to read but we do learn how to hit and also we have made it so popular cause we have so many heros there. on the other hand in football the team does not get the requred media coverage and aslo they dnt get the facility req. to be a good football team and comptee at the internation arena

I am from India, and the most popular sport here in my country is cricket.. Though Hockey is our national game, but Cricket in our country is given far more importance than hockey.. Infact there has been talk of late to let cricket be the national game for India..

In my country, soccer is the sport with about the largest following. There are probably more people who follow the soccer leagues (especially the English Premier League) than those who actually play the game. Many households subscribe to cable just to watch live soccer games on TV. During the weekends, the coffee shops will be crowded with people because live EPL soccer is shown on big screens there. Several other sports which are popular but have a lesser following are tennis, table-tennis, badminton and bowling.
