The sporting sector face a lot of confusion when it comes to deciding which game is more popular than the other in the current world where there are a lot of sports been undertaken across the globe.We cannot all support the same events due to the fact that different people have varying preferences as well what we aim to achieve from a sport differ with some looking for pleasure and fun and others taking it as a means of making a living.This article endeavors to clarify some key aspects which determine popularity of a sporting activity.
People are overwhelmed to always find something to do during their free time and is for this reason that sport and fun go hand in hand.Adittionally, if a sport attracts a lot of interest then it can have more people watching even if they are not participating and that already is popularity created by the media in collaboration with companies which provide financial support to those sports.If all sports were televised by mainstream media, then all sports could be at the same level but the corporates can be at loss because of lack of audience for their advertisements which they place on the media during such events as well as through sponsorship to teams and individuals who participate on events.
People are attracted by sports which they perceive to be incorporating their interests in this case, the more a gaming activity balances with the social expectations, this higher the level or acceptance.Sports are driven by financial backing from corporates and therefore, for large multinationals spanning across different markets they are looking for those sports which have support from different cultural setups and this has driven some sports down the popularity ladder because they are only designed for a specific group of people.With great financial support some sports enjoy more media coverage than other creating awareness for them and making them more popular than others.If a sport is meant and designed to bring together a certain class or group of people then its popularity can definitely be low.
Another phenomenal element which can contribute to the popularity of a sport is the level of excitement brought by the game.Sporting activities which bring out enthusiasm is likely to attract more people than a dull event with not excitement.Such activities which attract the attention of everyone globally are seen to promote peace and coexistence and gain much support.
Finally, the sporting world has evolved time to time with most of the historically know events been overtaken by new ones.Most upcoming sports are only practiced in small parts of the word by a small group of people and that makes such activities lack the relevant publicity to be at the same level as the one which has been around for long.
